Cathedral Preparatory School Reviews
My experience at Cathedral Prep has made me a better learner, has given me countless athletic opportunities, and has made me a more devoted Christian. You get a true sense of what it means to be a Rambler from the day to day attitude of the student body and faculty. School pride is something that has become part of me in both academics and athletics. Freshman year was a shock to me with how rigorous the academics and athletics were. Over time however, I have come to appreciate how much I have learned compared to other schools and how many more opportunities I have received. I fully recommend this school to anyone who is in the Erie area and is considering which high school to go to. It's the best. It's that simple. Roll Ramblers!
The school is going down hill. The new proposed schedule is going to severely ruin the school and destroy the opportunities they love to boast about in their advertisements. The atmosphere almost feels like a prison because of the principal using scare tactics on the student body and disrespecting everyone and their families. I find it hard recommending this school to shadows because of the way we are treated especially when you don’t play a sport. The food is also terrible and they used to have great food but thya changed and become terrible. Overall, medicorce.
Cathedral Prep is a school that specializes in the development of "spirit, mind, and body." Spiritually- students are taught about living life through faith based on catholic moral teaching. These teachings allow for morals to be strengthened and a deeper conscience to emerge. Prep's academics are top notch, having strong curriculum and great teachers. Finally, Prep has the best sports team in the surrounding area with a strong student support system. Through this motto, my experience at Cathedral Prep has been overwhelmingly positive.
