The Cathedral School is an independent private school in Manhattan, NYC serving nursery school age children through eighth grade.
The school was founded in 1949 and maintains small class sizes in order to maximize individual student and teacher interaction time. The school faculty wants to encourage active student participation in all classroom activities.
The Cathedral School’s mission statement claims its core values are “Commitment, Compassion, and Responsibility.”
Programs offered at the school include:
- Early Childhood Education – Includes nursery and pre-kindergarten.
- Lower School - Consists of kindergarten through grade four.
- Upper School - Made up of grades five through eight.
The average class is ten students. There are currently 130 students enrolled, which means that The Cathedral School acts as a small community where everyone can get to know everyone else, students and faculty alike.
Not only do teachers and faculty at the school value a huge commitment to academic excellence, but there is also an after school program to help students develop while waiting for parents to pick them up.
