Thank you for your interest in Cathedral School for Boys. We are honored that you are taking the time to learn about CSB – a truly magical place.

For more than 50 years, CSB has inspired intellectual curiosity and a passion for learning in boys in kindergarten through eighth grade. We are committed to fostering the spiritual, intellectual, and physical growth of each student. We do this with a committed faculty and an in-depth knowledge of how boys learn. We are the optimum size for an elementary school, with an atmosphere of fellowship that imparts knowledge, so that boys will not only be able to think critically, but creatively and independently as well.

In order to achieve this standard of excellence, embrace responsibility, and respect fellow students, our students receive an excellent educational experience. As an Episcopal school nestled on the grounds of Grace Cathedral - a building of breathless architecture and unparalleled beauty - we strive for diversity of thought, experience, and perspective. Families of all faiths and cultures are welcomed here.

Boys enter high school prepared for rigorous academics as well as the challenges of life, and with a respect for fellow humans.

Selecting the right school for your son is an important decision. So what makes Cathedral School for Boys special? Come take a tour and see for yourself. We delight in showing our school to prospective parents.

Annually, Rolling Admission procedures will begin April 1 through August 15. Start the admission process by going online and submitting a request for information. Should spots become available between these dates, we will contact you immediately. If you are interested in applying for your son's entry into Cathedral for the 2018-19 school year, please request information after September 1, 2017.

Thank you for your interest in our school.
