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.
