Cathedral Catholic High School Reviews

I loved everything about my high school. I loved how CCHS made sure to include everyone in everything and made sure no one got left behind. This school really goes above and beyond to make sure the students feel comfortable and to make sure that its students are being led towards a path of success. This school made me feel like I was able to conquer anything and it made me feel like I was only heading towards great things in my future. I love how they take the curriculum very seriously and if someone is falling behind, they do whatever they can to help. I loved Cathedral Catholic High School so much! When I have children, I am definitely investing my money into my children's education because I experience what Cathedral Catholic did for me.

The immediate warmth and sense of community on camps still astonishes me everyday. Every single student is so stoked to be there living out their journey on such a beautiful campus. Each student has such individuality, yet we all bind together with such compassion and friendship. There are so many ways to be involved, no matter what your hobbies or interests. Ive had such an opportunity to better myself through being part of some of the amazing clubs on campus like bible study club or FCA. I was welcomed, with such open arms, to sit in on debate team meetings or on academic leauge, ect. I feel that if I tried to engage myself in some fo these clubs at some of the other higschools I considered attending I would be mildly persecuted. For me, Cathedral has given me an overwhelming amount of opportunity to express myself, pursue my dreams/goals, investigate new things, all while providing me with great academics.
I absolutely love being able to attend such a faith-filled community! The students, while most are very wealthy, are friendly and overall enthusiastic about going here. Coming from a public school, CCHS was a big change for me! However, I still found a great group of friends and I also love wearing the uniforms here. Most all of the teachers are very friendly and willing to help. The academics are very rigorous, however, that has prepared me most for college ahead. Great four years so far and I would go here again if I had to start all over.
