Mission and Philosophy

Our Mission

Cathedral Catholic High School is an innovative academic community of lifelong learners grounded in the Catholic faith that prepares our graduates to live God’s call and build the Kingdom.

Our Philosophy

Cathedral Catholic High School is a leader in Catholic, college preparatory education. Our rigorous, innovative education program is offered in a nurturing community based on teachings of Jesus Christ and Traditions of the Catholic Church.

Our CCHS core values — faith, knowledge, character, and responsibility — developed from our University of San Diego High School heritage guide our graduates’ growth to become responsible leaders. Our program is student centered, recognizing that each person is made in the image and likeness of God and shaped by differences in interest, ability, and background. We are a collaborative community, dedicated to learning and teaching students to assume responsibility for their own educational and spiritual growth. In partnership with parents, we form an educational ministry that is mutually supportive and committed to excellence.

Our Promise

Cathedral Catholic High School — a community built on faith, knowledge, character, and responsibility since 1957.
