Wellness Home Academics & Student Support Counseling Services and Wellbeing Wellness

Student wellness focuses on creating a healthy balance in the academic, faith, extracurricular and personal/social areas of student life. According to UC Davis, wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life.

To support this mission, Cathedral Catholic embeds wellness ideals into the school’s daily practices and offers programmatic wellness activities throughout the year. In addition, school programs and initiatives center around this goal of student wellness.
