Raising the bar on raising boys

Who We Are

At Cathedral School for Boys, we believe we must continue to define what it means to educate and raise boys. We devote each day to the spirited dialogue, dynamic lessons, and intentional character-building that guide each young boy to engage in the way that best fits him, while he simultaneously develops empathy and respect for the world around him.
Because Cathedral is here to raise the bar on raising boys.
