Is Centre a good school?

The definition of a "good school" is different for different people. Acceptance rate and average GPA are good indicators of how selective an institution is, but they don't tell you how happy or successful students are.

Retention and graduation rates

Compare this to the average six-year graduation rate for colleges and universities in the U.S., which is around 61 percent for public schools and 67 percent for private.

Job outcomes and student debt

Job placement and student debt statistics for recent graduates can give you a sense of the return on investment a school offers. Within six months of graduating, 97 percent of graduates receive at least one full-time job offer.

The average student debt for graduates in the class of 2021 was around $24,921 per student, not including those with no debt. For context, compare this number with the average national debt, which is around $36,000 per borrower.
