Cathedral High School

Starting on the Path to Successful Careers in Medicine, Law, Business or STEM

Located at 350 East 56th Street (between First and Second avenues) in New York City, academic success has been synonymous with Cathedral High School 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, business and STEM, languages which include Spanish, Mandarin, American Sign Language and Latin as well as forensic science and anatomy, robotics, broadcasting and 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. Students receive first-hand experience in medical 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.

A full compliment of extracurricular activities keep the career-minded student body well rounded: from clubs such as the marching band, musical theater, choir and Girls Who Code, to sports which include basketball, cheerleading, fencing, soccer, softball, lacrosse, track and volleyball.

Cathedral prepares its students for the world that lies ahead of them.

The Class of 2016 received over $25 million in college scholarships and grants and were accepted into schools such as Barnard College, Columbia University, NYU and Brandeis University.
