Cathedral High School offers a program of study that is appropriate and stimulating.  Courses provide the intellectually rigorous course work students need as part of an integrated, well-rounded, college preparatory education offered in the Catholic and Lasallian tradition.

Our academic program provides a balance between core courses required of all, and an elective program that recognizes the diversity of talents and interests found in our student body. 

Cathedral offers honor courses and participates in the nationwide Advanced Placement Program of college-level instruction in high school by offering Advanced Placement courses.  

Cathedral High School offers a college preparatory program of studies to enable all students to meet the minimum requirements for both the University of California (UC) system and the California State University (CSU) system.  Most academic advisors of both high school and college students agree, however, that preparation for university study includes more than the basic requirements for entrance.  Therefore, students are encouraged to enroll in classes well beyond the minimum requirements. 

In order to help students achieve success, Cathedral offers various academic support services.  These services include personal counseling, college counseling, and academic counseling by grade level.  In addition, the morning program is offered to provide students with the opportunity to improve their overall study habits and to receive tutorial assistance in all subject areas.

Dear Cathedral Students and Parents,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! 

I am excited to enter my 19th year at Cathedral.  I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to Cathedral High School.  I am very pleased to be part of this Lasallian Community.  I am looking forward to working with all of you to ensure that your academic needs and goals are met.  I have the opportunity to work with dedicated teachers that have the best interest in your sons.

Cathedral High School College Preparatory prepares students for the rigors of college education by following a 7 class period schedule that adheres to the University of California “a-g” requirements for college admission.  Students receive many opportunities to take honor classes, Advanced Placement (AP) courses, and college approved electives throughout their 4 years at Cathedral, while taking other courses that improve their physical and religious outlook on life.

I am eager to work with each student and family during the upcoming school year.  Collaboratively, we can ensure that your son’s academic needs and goals are met to help prepare him for college.  It is important that we communicate and work together as your son begins or continues to plan for his college years.

Thank you for partnering with us. Our wonderful and dedicated faculty/staff and I look forward to working with you and your son.  

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for entrusting your sons to our care.


Live Jesus in our Hearts!


Ms. Sulema Modesto
