The Cathedral School of St. John the Divine is an independent, Episcopal, K-8 day school for girls and boys of all faiths.
The School is committed to a rigorous academic program that integrates the arts, athletics, and leadership development.
The School prides itself in being a diverse community in partnership with families who take an active role in their children’s intellectual, ethical, social, and emotional growth.
The Cathedral School offers a stimulating environment in which each child can become an articulate, confident, and responsible citizen of the world.
Continuing a century-old relationship, the School draws upon the Cathedral’s vast resources and provides its children’s choir.
As educators, we must instruct and empower children to challenge assumptions and ask questions in order to become responsible citizens in a diverse world.
At The Cathedral School, we believe that the recognition and appreciation of differences in race, socioeconomic status, cultural or religious tradition, age, gender, ability, and sexual orientation enhance the individual's sense of identity and broaden respect for others.
