From Cathedral Catholic High School

Cathedral Catholic High School is a leader in Catholic, college preparatory education. Our rigorous, innovative education program is offered in a nurturing community based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Traditions of the Catholic Church.

Our Cathedral Catholic core values — character, faith, knowledge and responsibility — developed from our University of San Diego High School heritage, guide our graduates’ growth to become responsible leaders. Our program is student-centered, recognizing that each person is made in the image and likeness of God and shaped by differences in interest, ability and background. We are a collaborative community dedicated to lifelong learning and teaching students to assume responsibility for their own educational and spiritual growth. In partnership with parents, we form an educational ministry that is mutually supportive and committed to excellence.
