The School enrolls 265 boys in kindergarten through eighth grade and is fully accredited by the California Association of Independent Schools. Cathedral School for Boys strives to provide an education derived from three main sources: the highest academic and personal standards humanely applied; a diverse community united in its concern for the school and for the world; and an active engagement with religion and the spiritual dimension.
Academically, the School sets high standards in literacy, basic skills, self-discipline, the joy of learning, and the pursuit of wisdom. We set equally high standards in good behavior, caring, mutual respect, truth-telling and honor, and emphasize these qualities in all aspects of school life. Art, music, drama and physical education are integral parts of the curriculum. We prepare boys to enter demanding secondary schools confidently; we recognize that there are a variety of learning styles and paces among able students, and we try to teach accordingly. Teachers focus on learning styles that are boy-friendly, particularly hands-on, active lessons which allow for movement and vigor.

Cathedral School for Boys is an equal opportunity employer and promotes the principles and practices of diversity throughout the school community. People of color are encouraged to apply. Compensation is competitive and includes health, dental and vision insurance and TIAA annuity program.
