Cathedral History Week was a virtual celebration of the school’s 119 years, starting with its founding in 1901. Each day of the week was themed, focusing on the many aspects that make our school so unique. 

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to catch up on daily content! Click here to view our Cathedral History Week Videos. There is still time to share an Act of Kindness, or submit a Retirement Tribute for Marsha Nelson, Head of School. See below for more details on each opportunity! 

Although much has changed since 1901, Cathedral continues to foster articulate, confident, responsible citizens of the world who understand the inherent value of all people and the importance of working towards equity in all that they do.
