High School Counseling

The high school counseling program at Cathedral is intentional, student-centered, and designed to help all of our students find and matriculate to their best-fit school. Our small size allows us to know our students well and offer personalized guidance for each boy and his family beginning in the spring of 7th grade and continuing with a dedicated weekly class period and frequent contact between the high school counselor and families. Through the high school counseling process, students employ the skills they've developed during their time at Cathedral to deepen their understanding of themselves, practice their interviewing and essay-writing skills, and use their time management skills to take the lead in conducting the search.
Cathedral graduates are known for their academic preparation, expressive ability, and strong sense of character and citizenship. High schools from across the country are eager to attract Cathedral students. Below you'll find a list of local day schools and boarding schools to which our students have matriculated in the past five years.
