At Cathedral School for Boys, students are consistently engaged and challenged to be the scholars and citizens our world needs. Our rigorous academic program builds critical literacy, numeracy and communication skills, all of which serve as a platform for higher-order thinking, problem-solving, and informed expression. Through our research-informed approach, Cathedral students graduate with the skills and capacity to lead in and out of the classroom in high school and beyond.
Our core subjects (history, math, language arts, and science) are complemented by a slate of equally comprehensive co-curricular offerings. Cathedral students engage as deeply in the arts, athletics, and service as they do in the classroom, understanding that to be fully whole, one must embrace creativity, collaboration, and perseverance.
To explore our full academic program by division and subject, please visit our Lower School (kindergarten through fourth grade) and Upper School (fifth through eighth grade) pages.
Our Portrait of a Graduate statement represents the values that are critical to a Cathedral School education and which we expect all of our alumni to espouse. These shared values are woven into every aspect of a Cathedral School student’s experience throughout their time at the school and at every grade level.
