The Indiana Department of Education has released the 2018-19 ratings for Indiana schools, and Cathedral earned an A. As a matter of fact, Cathedral has received an A rating all nine years this DOE acknowledgment program has been in place. The DOE bases the ratings on several factors, including state test scores, academic growth, and graduation rates.
"This grade is yet another indicator of excellent outcomes based on our mission to educate the hearts and minds of our young people," says President Rob Bridges.
"Cathedral is blessed to have an outstanding group of teachers and counselors who are academic professionals," says Principal Julie Barthel. "Our teachers and counselors love and care for their students and build trusting relationships that last a lifetime. Our students believe it's 'cool to be smart,' so they take full advantage of the many spiritual, academic, and social opportunities afforded to them every day."
Cathedral is a premier Catholic high school in the Holy Cross tradition. Cathedral is proud to offer 28 AP classes, a full International Baccalaureate Programme, and 17 dual-credit classes. Cathedral also has three instructional levels, plus a Learning Resource Center and the renowned Language Support Program for students with diagnosed learning differences.
