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.

Mr. Kevin Calkins, Principal; Mr. Stevan Laaperi, President, Principal

So awesome!!

As the school year begins to wind down, we asked a couple of our teachers to select a student that inspires them. We wanted to share this touching video with our community.

We are all blessed to a Don! #rolldons
