Cathedral 7-12 High School has had an incredible 2016-2017 school year. These are the top seven highlights made possible through the generous support of our mission by our trustees, benefactors, the community, as well as through the engagement of our students, families, faculty, and staff.
Full STEAM Ahead
With an increased focus on applied learning and STEAM-based education, Cathedral has launched a $10 Million capital campaign to build an Applied Learning Center at our South End campus. What once was the school convent will become a maker space, an area dedicated to arts and cultural activities, and seven additional collaborative learning spaces to meet the demands of our growing enrollment.
All College-Bound for 14 Years
Cathedral High School’s 87th Commencement Exercises marked the fourteenth consecutive year that the South End school saw every single senior graduate and earn college admission. The 57 members of the Class of 2017 received their high school diplomas Saturday, May 20 at Saint James the Greater Church in Boston.
Girls Hoops Earn Back-to-Back State Crowns
The Cathedral Panthers girls varsity basketball team earned their second consecutive MIAA State Championship title in Division IV on a 14-game winning streak, picking up a number of additional honors and milestones along the way including a reception with Governor Baker and special recognition by the Catholic Central League, the Boston Globe, and the Boston Herald.
Students Learn from Financial Industry Pros
Professionals from across the finance industry volunteered their time to conduct financial literacy workshops with students from Cathedral 7-12 High School’s senior class. The applied learning workshops helped prepare students who were about to graduate and will have some level of financial independence for the first time in their lives.
AutoDesk Tinker Day
AutoDesk partnered with Cathedral to provide a hands-on, applied learning workshop for students involving CAD-based design, engineering, and fabrication with 3D printers among other STEAM skill sets. These activities built the educational foundation for the future Applied Learning Center at Cathedral.
Yawkey Foundation Selects Two Scholars at Cathedral
Two Cathedral High School students were selected from among about 25 across Massachusetts to receive the highly competitive Yawkey Scholarship. The Yawkey Scholars Program helps talented and motivated disadvantaged young people meet the rising costs of undergraduate education.
