Thank you for your interest in The Cathedral School! We are excited for you to learn more about our vibrant mix of academic excellence, character development, and passion for learning which yields bold minds and thoughtful scholars.

We encourage and shape each child’s natural curiosity and wonder, until it becomes the resilient and self-renewing engine for genuine scholarship. Our curriculum is designed with an expectation of excellence. It cultivates critical thinking, thoughtful questions, demonstrated knowledge, and a respect for others. Cathedral students have the intellectual rigor, extraordinary academic foundation, communication skills, and personal confidence to thrive as individuals, bold and purposeful leaders, and empowered citizens.
The Cathedral School’s landmarked century-old campus offers playgrounds, trees, lawns, and unparalleled opportunities for large-scale STEAM projects and outdoor learning. We offer innovative art, music, technology, and language programs within the framework of a traditional foundation. Our graduates, who go on to matriculate to our nation’s top high schools and universities, are leaders with confidence in their own voices, demonstrated academic achievement, a willingness to create and invent, and a profound joy in learning.

We look forward to working with your family throughout the admission process and helping to make it as informative and accessible as possible.
