Develop your foundation: We help develop your foundation by challenging you in the classroom, supporting your personal interests in extra-curricular or athletic activities, providing internship opportunities, instilling a life-long commitment to service, and teaching values. A Cathedral foundation will give you the intellectual and spiritual strength to not only achieve academically, but to also succeed in life.
Belong to Something Special: Cathedral students are young men and women of varied backgrounds, cultures, interests, and talents, who mutually accepteach other and embrace their diversity. We foster a special community that is shaped by shared experiences, formed by Christian values, and united by faith in each other’s ability to better the world.
Prepared to Achieve in College: Cathedral has one of the best college acceptance rates in Boston. Our graduates are prepared to achieve in college because their foundation was built with focus, perseverance, integrity, and resilience.
Guidance from Caring Teachers: Parents and students acknowledge and appreciate that the most significant strength of Cathedral is our faculty. They are tirelessly devoted to ensuring each student receives personal attention and support. Our teachers motivate each student to advance to higher levels of proficiency and to help them to discover their capabilities and talents.
Supporting Our Young Men and Women: Cathedral works with families to ensure the best educational experience for their children. Our administrators, coaches, faculty, and staff collaborate in supporting the goals, needs, and accomplishments of each of our young men and women. Students say that our guidance and campus ministry programs are the best examples of the unyielding support they receive at Cathedral High School. These resources, combined with our full-time nurse, full-time social worker, food services and social activities, come together to provide each student with a vast and loving support system.
Learn Christian Values: We mentor, nurture, and unconditionally love each student. As a Catholic school, Cathedral teaches Christian values to every student and instills the integrity to live them at all times.
Sustaining the Cathedral Community: Private philanthropy keeps tuition affordable through the support of our Board of Trustees, alumni, and our many corporate and foundation partners. Their generosity allows our families to work with us to sustain a community of achievement, to inspire character-building, and to encourage mutual acceptance.
A Tradition of Providing Educational Opportunities: Cathedral was founded in 1926 to educate the children of immigrants and first generation Americans living in and around the South End. Cathedral has provided educational opportunities to successive generations of Boston youth for eighty-six years, by preserving a safe and structured learning environment.
