The Cathedral School is set in the heart of a 13-acre campus unlike any other in Manhattan. Within this unique environment, we cultivate our students’ natural curiosity into a passion for lifelong learning. We believe in a rigorous academic program that blends innovation and tradition. From kindergarten through 8th grade, our dedicated faculty challenge and support Cathedral students as they grow into critical thinkers, thoughtful scholars, and culturally competent leaders.

A sense of community is essential to life at The Cathedral School. We welcome all faiths, and value each child as a whole person, with respect for their individuality and worth. For our students, participation in our nationally-recognized Identity Curriculum allows them to broaden perspectives and celebrate identity, culture, and the wonder of human diversity.

We are committed to academic excellence in a curriculum that integrates critical thinking, the arts, athletics, and leadership development.
