According to the U.S. Department of Education, over the past two decades, while college-educated workers’ wages have increased, annual salaries for those with only a high school education have decreased. In a study by the Alliance for Excellent Education, findings concluded that by 2020 only 36% of jobs will be open to high school graduates.
The reality is straightforward, in a world full of jobs that require and will require post high school education,quality students, the emphasis of a student’s growth can no longer rest solely on grades or test scores. At Cathedral, we focus on creating a well-rounded man with the highest moral character, a dedication to community service, and a litany of extracurricular activities that stimulate the mind and body. Our goal is simple, to help our students achieve their dreams and in the process nurture men. We see our two goals as different parts of a whole, unable to succeed without the other and within that belief lies the value of Cathedral High School. All students dream of a particular life, career, or college but while most schools only allow students to dream, Cathedral helps students achieve them. If a student applies himself, takes advantage of Cathedral, and does everything asked of him he will leave our school with the best opportunity to accomplish his goals.
