Welcome to Cathedral High School - where young men become the best version of themselves

Welcome to Cathedral

As the Admissions and Recruitment Coordinator at Cathedral High School it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school. Since 1925, Cathedral has been more than a place of learning; for our current students and thousands of alumni, it is home. As the city’s preeminent high school and one of the most recognizable high schools in the country, Cathedral exists to develop its students into exceptional leaders, citizens, and men.

Cathedral’s distinct edge within education lies in the combined implementation of a dual credit college program and the individual counseling that our students receive. The young men who enter our school are ambitious and view their education as a means of providing a better life for themselves and their family.

Through our efforts and their determination our 2016 class was able to achieve the following:

  • 14 Gates Millennium Scholars (New National Record)
  • 8 National Hispanic Scholars
  • 3,000+ College Credit Hours Earned
  • 100% Acceptance rate into college
  • Over $41 million in Financial Aid Awarded ( a city record)
  • Acceptances to top universities in the country including: Princeton University, Harvard University, Duke University, University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, Cornell University, Rice University, University of Notre Dame, Emory University, Georgetown University, University of California-Berkeley

The true magic of Cathedral, however, lies in the brotherhood our students share with each other. There is an innate sense of camaraderie and family within our school and is clearest seen when our students interact. The collaborative nature of our young men, whether it be in school work and college applications or community service and athletics is proof that above all else, Cathedral is a great place to grow up.

As the Admissions and Recruitment coordinator, my role is to help students and their families turn the dream of a Cathedral education into a reality. If you have questions about registration and financial aid or would like
to set up an appointment please do not hesitate to contact me.

Viva La Cate!
