What challenges did the Class of 2022 face as they returned to in-person school full time, and how did they overcome them: Aurora Central Catholic was one of the few schools that had in-person school all of last year. The students often commented that they were happy to be here and not e-learning.
Principal's reflections on the Class of 2022: The Aurora Central Catholic Class of 2022 confronted the many challenges caused by the pandemic with much more than determination. They met these hurdles with a spirit of optimism, compassion and hope. The Class of 2022 also helped the entire school community to "restart" traditions halted by the pandemic including: Charge into ACC for Freshmen, Homecoming activities, athletic contests with game themes, Senior Week and the Prom.
