The School of the Cathedral, a premier and Blue Ribbon School, offers a strong foundation in spiritual strength, academic excellence, and 21st century learning. Located in Baltimore, Cathedral educates students in PreK4 through eighth grade. Lower school students begin their academic journey by developing their social skills, reading and writing principles, math and science.  Beginning in third grade, we reduce the educational scaffolding as students grow in independence. Students complete their academic journey in middle school, where they serve as leaders in the school through liturgical ministry, mentorship programs, and service projects.

    To enhance our students’ education, technology is incorporated into every class through individual iPads, Chromebooks, and electronic whiteboards. Modern facilities include a PreK4 – 8 science lab, turf field, a Makerspace, outdoor Learning Pavillion, teaching garden and some classrooms with flexible seating options. As a Catholic parish school, we attend to our students spiritual needs through weekly Liturgies, religion class, sacrament prep and service projects. Graduates of Cathedral are prepared to meet the leadership needs of an evolving world.

    Positive School Environment

    To foster a positive school environment where all students are educated in a safe and caring atmosphere, all Archdiocesan schools will follow established procedures for prevention and intervention for bullying, harassment or intimidation. Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) has been implemented in every Archdiocesan elementary and high school to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students. School of the Cathedral has achieved Bronze status with PBIS.



    All Archdiocesan high schools and elementary schools are accredited as a system through Cognia. Every five years, the Department of Catholic Schools completes a system-wide accreditation review, which culminates with a visit by an Cognia External Review Team. Each school is evaluated based on the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools.

    Governance Model

    School of the Cathedral is an Archdiocesan Collaborative School (ACS), which is a model of shared governance developed by the Archdiocese of Baltimore. The ACS model utilizes a shared governance model that fosters unity through the collaboration of stakeholders in support of Catholic schools. The model allows decisions regarding day-to-day school operations to be made at the local level, while individual schools and school administrators are supported centrally from the Department of Catholic Schools and the Catholic Center’s Central Services in areas such as academics, finance, development, enrollment management and marketing.
