Adopt-A-Student Foundation

The Adopt-A-Student Foundation for Cathedral High School in Boston

The Adopt-A-Student Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization established to ensure that students of all economic, educational, and faith backgrounds have access to a quality, values-based college preparatory education. Since 1926, Cathedral High School has helped open the doors of educational opportunity to generations of Boston’s youth.  The Adopt-A-Student Foundation ensures that no student is turned away from Cathedral due to lack of means.

Tuition covers less than 20% of the school’s costs. Cathedral relies on the Boston philanthropic community to provide financial assistance to 100% of Cathedral’s students. The Adopt-A-Student Foundation organizes fundraising events in support of Boston urban Catholic education at Cathedral High School.
