At Cathedral School, we strive to improve our school each year by introducing new and challenging programs.
All areas of the curriculum are important to give our students a well-rounded education.
The religious dimension is the most important facet of our educational program.
To teach the children about God is, indeed, a privilege and a grace for those who teach at Cathedral School.
To assist the students in developing a strong relationship with God, while sharing our faith with them, is a great gift for them and for each of us.
Seeing children turn to God for help, even when they are very small, allows us a glimpse of what really matters.
