Cathedral School For Boys
- 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.
