Message from the Principal’s Office

Dear Cathedral Parents and Guardians,

I hope all of you enjoyed a blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends! We are certainly thankful for all of you and grateful to be back on the Hill to finish the semester.

Has your child told you why they want to be a coffee bean instead of a carrot or a hard-boiled egg? Earlier this week, we were so fortunate to have internationally known and best-selling author Damon West speak to our students. His message was truly uplifting and inspiring for students and educators. Click here to learn more about Damon West’s journey and his message to young people.

We also recently heard from Fr. Leo Patalinghug, founder of Plating Grace and The Table Foundation. Fr. Leo was in town for the National Catholic Youth Conference and stopped by Cathedral to speak with our students. His presentation was fun, engaging, and meaningful.  Click here to learn more about Fr. Leo.

We are thrilled to offer these opportunities during our Activity Periods. These speakers echo our mission to give our students the competence to see and the courage to act. We hope you take a little time to talk to your student about these speakers and what they enjoyed most about them.

 Annual Winter Formal

2022-2023 Tuition and Fees Approved by Cathedral Board of Trustees

The 2022-2023 tuition and fees were approved by the Cathedral Board of Trustees. The modest tuition increase follows three consecutive years of a tuition freeze. For families paying in full by September 1, 2022 for the 2022-2023 school year, a credit of $300 per student will be applied to the FACTS account. Effective in the 2022-2023 school year, no fee will be assessed for selecting a payment plan. Re-enrollment information for next school year will be sent in February.

Finals Are Approaching!

Finals are the week of December 13. Students should make sure they are communicating with their teachers where necessary, set aside plenty of time to complete and turn in homework, be intentional with studying for quizzes/assessments, and have a game plan for final exams

While there are many different approaches or strategies for studying, our counseling department is sharing a technique your child may or may not be familiar with at this time. It’s called the Pomodoro Method. The premise behind this studying technique is to break up homework assignments, projects, reading assignments, papers/essays, studying for assessments, etc., into manageable parts, making your after-school work time both efficient and effective. 

Students are asked to take a minute to view this brief video and reflect on their study skills/habits to see if incorporating this method could benefit them with time management and goal setting.
