McDonell Central Catholic High School

Welcome to MACS

McDonell Central Catholic High School has been part of the long tradition of quality Catholic liberal arts education located in Chippewa Falls that started in 1882.

At this stage of the educational journey, your child will be refining their ability to recognize ideas, form arguments, and communicate eloquently and convincingly. Teens tend to be opinionated and our faculty and staff help guide the students to communicate those opinions in an articulate and logical manner. 

Your child will also begin to see his/her abilities as a leader and will have opportunities to participate in Mass, youth ministry, musicals, sports, mentor programs, Student Ambassadors and other service/clubs. 

Other opportunities include Project Lead The Way (Engineering and Biomedical Science), apprenticeship programs, and friendships with students from around the world. 

St. Paul commands us to be able to give an answer for the hope that is in all of us. At McDonell we lean in to bring out the beauty, the good, and truth that inspires hope. We believe in our students and their God-given gifts and talents to make a difference.

“Our faith is what has brought us all together and will continue to guide our lives. It gives us hope and helps us grow in love of neighbor and self and I can’t be more thankful to have learned about it and been encouraged in it here at MACS.”
