Cathedral Catholic High School Admission Policy

CCHS follows a selective admission policy. An Admissions Committee considers each applicant’s previous school records, recommendations, and placement test results. Testing is used as a tool to provide information to assist in the assessment of all applicants. In all cases, the school retains the right to determine, in its sole discretion, whether or not to select a student for admission or to re-enroll a student.

It is the policy of the school not to discriminate in violation of the law on the basis of race, sex, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, or disability which is unrelated to the ability to enjoy the benefits of the school’s programs, facilities, or services. All persons are encouraged to apply.

Cathedral Catholic High School provides a tuition assistance program that is funded through the school’s annual budget. The purpose of the program is to make Catholic secondary school education as accessible as possible to a broad spectrum of students.

Admissions Guidelines for Catholic High Schools

All Catholic, secondary schools in San Diego offer a college preparatory education rooted in the values and tradition of the Catholic Church.  We each remain committed to fostering access to a faith-based education to as many students as possible. To process admissions applications quickly and be able to offer financial assistance to families who qualify we ask that families apply and take the placement test at their first-choice school.
Families are encouraged to contact the various schools early in the term to learn more about academic and athletic programs, campus ministry and retreats, prospective family events and extra-curricular activities.
