Mission Statement

We are Nouvel Catholic Central - called by Christ to learn, love, and lead… courageously.  


Nouvel seeks to ignite interest in learning.  Students are met where they are in aptitude, faith, and bearing. They are provided rigorous and relevant intellectual and spiritual challenges to learn and apply critical thinking skills while maintaining a commitment to academic integrity and self improvement.  


Nouvel students learn to love God, self, and others.  The living Christ is encountered by serving those in need, pursuing justice, and giving a voice to the underrepresented.  


Respect is held in high regard – in word and deed.  Authentic faith is modeled through courageous acts of leadership, thereby fully participating in our Catholic-Christian way of living: inviting Christ to actively work through the students.  Nouvel students lead by compassion in a changing society, nurturing the mind, faith and moral soundness through courageous acts of discipleship – enroute to leadership.


At Nouvel Catholic Central High School, we provide an educational ministry based upon the Gospel principles as expressed in the history, tradition, doctrine and liturgy of the Catholic Church. Faith serves as the moral compass for all that we do. Our faith foundation intentionally fosters students’ growth in four key areas: leadership, intellectual, spiritual and personal. Students exemplify their faith through daily prayer, weekly Mass, and thousands of hours in service to the community each year.



Students graduate from Nouvel Catholic Central High School prepared to succeed. Our high-achieving students attract multiple scholarship offers, grants, awards and scholarship opportunities. We offer Advanced Placement, college preparatory, and honors curriculums in addition to dual enrollment and opportunities at the Saginaw Career Complex.
