Admission Process

  • Complete our Online Inquiry/Admission Form to let us know that you are interested in Cathedral School for Boys. If you are interested in applying for your son's entry into Cathedral for the 2018-19 school year, please request information and schedule a tour after September 1, 2017.
  • Shortly after, you will be given a user name and temporary password so you may access our portal, create your own personal password, and begin your son's online application.
  • Admission packets will also be mailed to you once your request for information has been submitted. Adjustable Tuition information will also be included if requested on the inquiry form.
  • After completing an inquiry, you will be sent a schedule of our open house and tour dates. We request that at least one adult attends either an open house or tour. While we hope the information packets are informative, we believe that experiencing our campus and community is the best way to learn if Cathedral is right for you.
