Cathedral Catholic High School is a Diocesan Catholic co-educational High School. CCHS is a college preparatory school conducted in and animated by the Catholic tradition. Our academic and co-curriculum programs reflect this tradition as well as adherence to our particular mission and philosophy statements. Education at CCHS is an integrative process involving the “whole” person, spiritual, intellectual, social and physical. The Cathedral Catholic graduate is expected to make informed decisions reflective of a well-developed intellect and a value system grounded in the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.

We send 98% of our graduates to college. Our strong curriculum has enabled the students to attend a great variety of colleges and universities. Included among those are: Notre Dame, Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Duke, Stanford, Santa Clara, Boston College, University of Arizona, University of San Francisco, U.C. Berkeley, UCLA and the University of San Diego to name a few.

The school is proud of its cultural and economic diversity. An ambitious financial-aid program provides over 4 million dollars in tuition assistance.

Cristo Rey High Schools are amazing. I love ours here in Houston. Go Dons.

That is so amazing that this is coming to the San Diego community. I am so excited to see the positive impact this will have. I am equally as proud to see our Dons community contributing to the start of a school that will be life changing for many teens in SD.

Amazing job inspired by Jesus Spirit and actions🙏🙏🙏

This is fantastic! Another reason to be proud of our Don community! ❤️👍❤️👍

All donations are welcome! Thank you! They can be dropped off at the Kolbe Center office. 😊😊

Can I donate CCHS clothing? If so, do I drop it off at the student store? A lot of the items have never been worn.

Im assuming no skirts for donation, but I have lots of things too.
