Cathedral H.S.: Career Path To Medicine, Law or STEM

Located at 350 East 56th Street (between 1st and 2nd Avenue) in New York City, academic success has been synonymous with Cathedral since its founding in 1905. Cathedral has educated generations of young women to meet their scholastic potential. Aside from offering an honors program and 10 Advanced Placement courses, Cathedral also offers programs in medicine, law and business, languages which include Spanish, Mandarin, American Sign Language and Latin as well as electives such as forensic science & anatomy, women’s studies, broadcasting & journalism, art and music, just to name a few.

Cathedral is immensely proud of its Medical Gateways program. Through partnerships with New York’s world-class medical community, students have opportunities to observe medical professionals at work and to participate in internships while still in high school. The students receive first-hand experience in institutions such as Beth Israel and New York Presbyterian.

In the law program, students explore careers in the legal system and participate in internships with law firms. Students take special classes and attend Saturday workshops that explore different legal and professional topics.

In 2015, Cathedral will be implanting a new STEM curriculum, which will include classes and clubs such as Robotics and Girls Who Code.

A full complement of extracurricular activities keeps the career-minded student body well rounded. From clubs such as the marching band, musical theater & choir to sports which include basketball, cheerleading, soccer, softball, lacrosse, cross country, volleyball and more.

Cathedral prepares its students for the world that lies ahead of them. The Class of 2015 received over $19 million in college scholarships and grants and were accepted into schools such as College of the Holy Cross, Columbia University, NYU and University of Pennsylvania
