Cathedral 7-12 High School is a philanthropy-based, urban, independent, Catholic, STEAM-based, applied learning school in Boston’s historic South End serving boys and girls of all faiths from grades 7 through 12.
Founded in 1926 and rooted in gospel values, Cathedral prepares students well for college and life. For 16 consecutive years, every single senior has graduated high school and earned admission to college. More than just getting into college, Cathedral scholars continue to excel and continue to receive support and guidance from the school through college graduation.
Guided by an independent board of trustees since 2004, Cathedral is a philanthropy-based school and offers philanthropy-based assistance to every student.
20 athletics teams for both boys and girls and at all playing levels from middle school and freshman through JV and varsity teach students teamwork, leadership, and healthy living. In addition to many sectional, league, and state championship teams, Cathedral has graduated star athletes such as WNBA player Michelle “Ice” Edwards, a 2014 inductee into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame.
