Central City Ministry of Toledo - CCMT Schools
Central City Ministry of Toledo, comprised of Queen of Apostles and Rosary Cathedral Campuses, is a central city K-8 Diocesan school. CCMT provides a strong academic and religious education to a diverse population while focusing on personal growth and compassion for others. We strive to develop life-long learners prepared to contribute to their community.
Queen of Apostles Catholic School was established circa 1867 making it the oldest continually operational K-8 in the City of Toledo (private or public). Rosary Cathedral Catholic School was established in 1915. Even before the City of Toledo (OH) existed, Catholic missionaries were here in Northwest Ohio serving the educational and health needs of its inhabitants. While the landscape has changed over the centuries, the needs and commitment to serve, as Jesup W. Scott said this “future great city” has carried forth through the ministry of Catholic education. To address the changes in Toledo’s societal and geodemographic landscape over the years, and to ensure a commitment to Catholic education within Toledo’s central city, Rev. Father Dale Werner convinced Toledo Bishop John Donovan in 1970 to create an organizational structure that would always provide Toledo’s inner-city residents with an opportunity to attend a faith based school, regardless of socio-economic status. With the support of Rev. Father Bernard Boff and Mr. John Anderson, of The Andersons Corporation, the Central City Ministry Department was created (later renamed to Central City Ministry of Toledo (CCMT). Over time, over 20 schools have been a part of this Diocesan-wide ministry known as CCMT. Today, CCMT is comprised of the only two remaining central city Catholic schools in Toledo, Ohior, Rosary Cathedral Catholic School (est. 1915) and Queen of Apostles (circa 1867 – Immaculate Conception School, a.k.a ‘The Darby.”) CCMT has approximately 50 employees between both schools with an annual K-8 enrollment of nearly 330 students
CCMT Catholic School endeavors to prepare students to be responsible and productive citizens who are followers of Christ, now and in the future. We believe: • each child is a valuable gift from God, each uniquely capable of learning • parents/guardians and teachers are partners in educating students to their maximum potential • instruction must provide for the learning styles of all students, thus enabling students to assume their own learning • cultural diversity needs to be acknowledged, utilized, and celebrated • that all persons, regardless of age, are called to be disciples of Jesus Christ and to serve the needs of others
