The Cathedral School Campaign

Our Vision





Dear Friend of The Cathedral School,

The Cathedral School has always been a school on a mission. Throughout our long history, we have dedicated ourselves over and over again to that mission in word, thought, and deed. Now, we plan on making a promise to that mission in stone, glass, and steel. I am proud to announce the construction of The Cathedral School Expansion, which reinforces our commitment to sustaining the mission of The Cathedral School.

In order to fuel innovation and honor the academic rigor at Cathedral, we must open up new space. Space for a 2,700-square-foot Library and Media Center, where collaborative learning thrives. Space for a STEAM-centric Innovation Lab, where the sciences, engineering, and the arts can collide.

Our plans for expanding our dining room and community gathering spaces will bring us together in ways large and small. In addition to welcoming parents and visitors each Friday morning to a roomier Assembly, students and teachers alike will be able to eat and share ideas in a comfortable and attractive dining room.

Each floor in the existing school building will be positively affected by this expansion. As the school’s footprint grows, existing spaces will be reimagined. Additional conference rooms, learning centers, and three new classrooms will enhance the learning experience of every Cathedral student.

Details count at Cathedral, inside and out. Stone from the same quarries that supplied the original limestone and schist will be used in our expansion, and big windows, in keeping with the original architecture, will frame our new dining room and common area. This beautiful limestone is a statement of our respect for our past, and expansive windows signal our openness and vision of the future.

It’s a future I am thrilled to share with you. I look forward to our conversations about how you can help us realize this exciting vision.

Our students – the articulate, bold, responsible future citizens of the world – deserve nothing less.

Thank you for your support.

Marsha Nelson, Head of School

It was as if we had this sanctuary that we went to every day. We were entering our community that was preparing us to be responsible participants in the world. Hands down, Cathedral gave me some of the most amazing moments of my life.
