From Cathedral High School

For more than 100 years, Cathedral High School has been educating young people's hearts and minds to have the competence to see and the courage to act. As a Holy Cross school, we base our mission on the teachings of Blessed Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross. Moreau's philosophy was to cultivate the mind while not forgetting the heart so that students are prepared to be useful citizens for society and later citizens of heaven. Our Holy Cross value of Excellence is evident in all that we do, whether it be Academics, the Arts, or Athletics.
