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, viewing their education as a means of providing a better life for themselves and their family.

The five most recent graduating classes at Cathedral (2013-2017) have accomplished the following:

  • $127,922,549 in college scholarships
  • 42 Gates Millennium Scholarship Recipients - Up to 10 years of college tuition paid for
  • 41 National Hispanic Scholars - National Hispanic scholars comprise the top 2% of PSAT takers in the country
  • 15,000+ College Credit Hours Earned - College credit is earned through Cathedral's vaunted Early Admissions program run in conjunction with El Paso Community College
  • 100% college acceptance rate
  • Acceptances to the following universities: Dartmouth University, United States Naval Academy, Brown University, University of Notre Dame, Case Western Reserve University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Texas at Austin, Stanford University, Princeton University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Chicago, Cornell University, Rice University, Georgetown University, Duke University, Vanderbilt University, University of Virginia, College of William and Mary New York University, Georgia Tech Institute of Technology, University of Southern California, University of California at Los Angeles, Harvard University, Yale University

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!
