Cathedral School for Boys, founded in 1957, strives to provide education in the best practices of single sex education for boys, in the tradition of the Episcopal Church.
We believe that this education is 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 one's own spiritual path.
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, which are boy-friendly: hands-on, active study that allows for movement and vigor.
We affirm the integrity of childhood and the elementary curriculum, and do not try to replicate secondary school studies.
Our mission is to provide an excellent education for boys at the elementary level; to attract a diverse student body of strong academic potential; and to provide a school committed to intellectual inquiry and rigor, welcoming to people of all religious traditions and beliefs.
