ADMISSION > Community Scholars Program

Cathedral School for Boys is thrilled to announce our new Community Scholars Program, a comprehensive merit scholarship for high-achieving, low-income, boys of color, entering the fifth or sixth grade. With this program Cathedral will continue to strive to live our School Mission more fully. We look forward to welcoming students into the community for whom an independent school education might not have otherwise had access. 

The Community Scholar Program provides: 
  • Up to full tuition for a student during his middle school years (fifth - eighth grade); 
  • Funding for associated school expenses like school uniforms, supplies, travel, and athletic equipment;
  • Technology support, such as wi-fi access at home; 
  • Transportation support to and from school; 
  • A week-long summer program designed to help the student and his family prepare for the academic, social, and cultural realities of Cathedral School; 
  • A mentor, who will be responsible for supporting the student and his family during his time at Cathedral School. 
Eligible applicants should: 
  • Be enrolled in grades 4th or 5th during the year of application; 
  • Consistently perform above grade-level in all subjects, averaging B+ or higher; 
  • Receive strong teacher recommendations from two current teachers (with a preference for math and English teachers); 
  • Perform well during a campus interview and screening; 
  • Demonstrate good character, the capacity for leadership, and a willingness to be a positive contributor to school life; 
  • Show a desire to participate in extracurricular activities; 
  • Have a household income of $100,000 or below. 
Cathedral School welcomes nominations. Interested candidates or their families should contact Tara Boland, Director of Admission, or by phone at 415.614.5113.
