Cathedral Catholic High School Reviews

When a school brings out the very best in your children, it's only natural that you would want to spread the good news. We have a senior and a freshman student at CCHS and couldn't be happier. Our students are very different, but each have been having a wonderful experience at this school. Because there are so many various activities, each got involved early, and the transition from 8th grade into high school was easy.
The teachers are very well-credentialed, dedicated and genuinely care that the student is learning. And as busy as they are with their own lives, these teachers are so accessible and responsive!
From academics, athletics and visual and performing arts, this school has a very gifted faculty and staff who help students realize their potential--not only in these fields, but also in being good people.
So happy with this school!

Cathedral has been the best high school decision we could have ever made for our children! It has been everything we dreamt and hoped for, from the academics, to sports, to character development, t o friendships, to families, teachers, administrators, security guards, and a beautiful, well kept campus. There is nothing we would change about any of it! We love Cathedral!
As an educator, I've had experience at many, many schools from the Midwest to the West Coast. I am continually impressed by the school climate at Cathedral. The students are top notch, the teachers are loving and well-equipped, the administration is ahead of the game. Look no further--for a world-class education, send your child to Cathedral!
