"Cathedral helped prepare me for top schools like Notre Dame through its Honors and AP classes, as well as it performing arts and academic extracurriculars.

"The English department at Cathedral prides itself on producing the top-performing writers in college courses. As a sophomore computer engineering student, I did not pay much attention to how my writing skills would affect my college experience. My English and communication professors were very impressed with my ability to express my thoughts.I have always succeeded in delivering a concise message to my professors regarding work done in the classroom. I doubt would possess such outstanding skills with Cathedral."

"Cathedral prepared me to academically compete with some of the nation's brightest students. My teachers were talented, engaging, and demanding and that rigor resulted in me becoming a stronger student and a member of Notre Dame's Dean's List. I took advantage of the many social, athletic, artistic, and leadership opportunities Cathedral offered. The initiative and discipline I gained through those activities was invaluable for my collegiate participation in student government and theatre productions."
