Grades: NS - 8 | 146 students
Founded in 1949, The Cathedral School provides a warm, nurturing and family atmosphere to 132 day students in Nursery - Grade 8. With a 10:1 student-teacher ratio, an international student body and placement of graduates in the city’s best high schools, The Cathedral School continues its legacy of educating children in The Classics. Our mission statement of “excellence through the classics” has become a central part of our curriculum as all of our students are encouraged and given the tools with which to integrate The Classics in their education. The curriculum includes Ancient Greek (Grades 7 - 8) and Mythology (Kindergarten - Grade 4). The Cathedral School has also become a charter member of the National Junior Classical League and our students routinely win highest honors in the League’s annual ETC (Excellence Through Classics) examination. Our participation has produced exceptional results, also described further on our website.
Apart from our mission of “Education through Classics”, The Cathedral School seeks to provide a well-rounded education to students. In addition to the standard core classes of Math, English, History, Social Studies and Science, The Cathedral School offers Chess, French, Computer Science, Physical Education, Art and Music in its daily curriculum. Movement and Exercise and Music Appreciation are taught to Early Childhood students. Our recent transition to the internationally successful Singapore Math Program for Grades K – 6 is yielding positive results. The After-School Center, which runs until 5:45pm, offers a variety of activities including sports, karate, music, art, creative writing, creative cooking, hands-on science, chess, drama, filmmaking 101, and Greek language and culture. A recent major grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation has made it possible for us to create a new Learning Center, increase our Smartboard™ technology to be available in every classroom, as well as to enhance a number of other academic initiatives such as faculty development and scholarship funding. This generous grant, matched by other donors, and the resulting projects undertaken are the latest examples of our will to constantly improve both our physical plant and the education we offer your children.
