Nob Hill

We love our Nob Hill neighborhood and have been a good neighbor since 1957. When boys attend school in a historic area of the city, they learn to appreciate culture, art, and architecture. Nob Hill is known for its landmarks and cultural institutions, and for being the site of the mansions of West Coast railroad magnates, such as Leland Stanford.

Grace Cathedral

Most notably, our campus is next door to San Francisco’s iconic Grace Cathedral. When boys are given the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than themselves, their spiritual formation and personal values begin to take shape. Cathedral School for Boys is affiliated with Grace Cathedral, where our students gather three times weekly to participate in service learning and experience community togetherness.


Our inviting Library, given in memory of William Sprott Boyd and Gordon S. Rentschler, helps children make sense of and appropriately access information in support of scholarship. It supports our curriculum, provides a wide variety of books to encourage a lifetime love and appreciation of literature, teaches information literacy in preparation for the challenges of living in an information-rich society, and serves as a resource for the entire community.

Gresham Hall

From the soaring space of the Cathedral to the auditorium of Gresham Hall, one cannot enter Cathedral School for Boys without being aware of the vitality of our performing arts program. For example, in every grade, music plays an important role in the lives of the boys. From weekly music classes to instrumental lessons to our famed Grace Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys, the always-busy Music Room fuels a community steeped in the rich traditions of music of both our Episcopal roots as well as the world at large.
