Nouvel Catholic Central, 2136 Berberovich St., Saginaw, Mich.

Welcome to Nouvel Catholic Central Elementary and Middle School!

We offer a PreK3-8th grade dynamic community where faith and knowledge meet. We provide an educational ministry based upon the Gospel principles as expressed in the history, tradition, doctrine and liturgy of the Catholic Church. Students participate in a strong academic program that takes into account the different talents and varied capabilities of all students.

Our littlest Panthers have a variety of preschool options to best meet the needs of each child. This includes Montessori and traditional preschool curriculum offerings, as well as multi-age classrooms and 3 year old and 4 year old designated classroom options. Along with the nurturing, loving care we give each child, our primary goal at this age is to help children experience the fun and joy that leads to an early excitement about learning and spiritual growth.  

As their children enter Nouvel Catholic Central Elementary school (young fives through 5th grade), parents see the difference our education makes immediately as their child grows in confidence, perseverance, kindness, discipline, and a budding knowledge of how much God loves them. At Nouvel, we know our students personally and what they need to thrive.

Our middle school students (6th through 8th grade) at Nouvel Catholic Central are vibrant, budding scholars and confident preteens that have developed a love of learning. At this stage, we continue helping our students become more engaged, active and self-advocating learners capable of handling a more rigorous curriculum that will prepare them for high school and college. 

Parents, as the primary educators of their children, are essential in the learning process and collaborate with the staff to encourage students to reach their full potential.

We would love to partner with your family to provide a high-quality, faith-based education for your child. We understand the importance of this decision and want to assist you during this process. Families are welcome to visit our campuses, learn more and even apply for acceptance throughout the school year. 

While we are firmly rooted in the Catholic faith, Nouvel Catholic Central is open to all those who want to learn, love and lead courageously. We invite you to explore all that we have to offer for your child!
