Get ready for Online Spirit Week, May 11-16!

Hosted by the Office of Institutional Advancement, Spirit Week is a brand-new, online celebration of the wonder and spirit of The Cathedral School (our first-ever!) for students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni, alumni families, and friends—no matter where we are! 

“In this time of distance, we wanted to develop an event that would bring together all elements of our Cathedral School community and, in doing so, help celebrate who we are and what makes us Cathedral,” said Elizabeth “Oz” Oswald, Director of Institutional Advancement. “Every element of Spirit Week is centered around the question, ‘What does the Cathedral Spirit mean to you?’ and I know I speak for myself and many others when I say how much we’re looking forward to helping our school stay connected in this way; I can’t wait to see all of the ‘spirited’ submissions!”

  3. Join us for daily 30-minute Spirit Sessions hosted by beloved members of our community. Drop in, say hello, and maybe even learn a thing or two as they share their experience and expertise. We can’t wait to share this exciting line-up!
  4. Pay tribute to Ann Bryant, Dr. John Vitale, and Chaplain Patti Welch—three stalwarts of spirit—by submitting a video, photo, or memory to help wish them well as they enter new chapters and embark on exciting new adventures.
