Community Scholars Program

Cathedral School for Boys invites qualified boys to apply to our Community Scholars Program, a comprehensive scholarship for high-achieving boys from underrepresented backgrounds, entering the 5th or 6th grade. With this program, Cathedral continues to strive to live our School Mission more fully to "attract a diverse student body of strong academic potential." We look forward to welcoming students into the community for whom an independent school education might not have otherwise been possible.
