Schoology is the learning management system (LMS) that we use at Cathedral Catholic. By definition, a learning management system is a software application for the administration, documentation, tracking, reporting and delivery of educational courses or training programs.
Schoology does a wonderful job of supporting collaboration between students and with teachers. It also allows parents the ability to monitor their student’s progress on a daily basis if desired.
Your parent account is created by Cathedral Catholic High School. You will receive an email with your unique password.

How do I view my student’s grades?
There are two ways to view grades, depending on how much detail you’d like to have.
First, login to your Schoology account and switch over to your student’s account.
A. On the Summary page, you will see their total current grade on the right hand side.
B. If you would like to view their grades for each assignment, text and quiz they have taken, then:
1. Choose Grades from the menu on the left.
2. Select the class for which you’d like to view the grades.
