NEW YORK – The Archdiocesan Cathedral School proudly announced another successful year with the achievements of the graduating class of 2016.
The students of the eighth grade class had excellent results in their high school placement process. High school admissions director, Juliana Fazzone, and their families guided the students through the competitive high school placement process with great results.
Every student received admission to their first choice high school. Horace Mann, United Nations International School, Loyola, Marymount, and Columbia Prep are among the highly competitive New York City independent schools that accepted Cathedral students.
In the public school application process, Cathedral students were equally successful, with applicants to specialized high schools qualifying with high scores for admission to Bronx Science and Lehman College School for American Studies.
Three Cathedral students were admitted to Eleanor Roosevelt High School and to Beacon, also their first choice schools.
The tradition of excellence continues with Cathedral’s class of 2016 and their high school placements.
In previous years, students have been accepted at an impressive list of top high schools including Bard, Brooklyn Tech, Dalton, Ethical Culture, Fordham Prep, LaGuardia, Sacred Heart, Trinity, and Stuyvesant.
The Cathedral School offers its students a “classical education for a modern world” and prepares its students for the most competitive high schools in the city which in turn prepare them for the future with all its challenges.
From early learning through middle school, the culturally diverse, coeducational school inspires its students with a lifelong love of learning.
The classical disciplines of Greek language and technology, science, mathematics, English, history, humanities, and religious studies provide a solid foundation for Cathedral students.
Values such as teamwork, integrity, and respect for one another in the nurturing, stimulating environment of the school promote achievement.
With all their accomplishments, the dedicated faculty and staff prepare the students for the challenging academic rigors of high school.
A student-teacher ratio of ten to one ensures a level of attention and accountability for individual students that few other institutions can offer.
The neighborhood feeling of the school, located on the Upper East Side, along with the most up to date teaching methods creates a unique educational experience for students and their families.
Founded in 1949 by the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, to serve Greek families in New York City, providing them a solid foundation in the Greek language, culture and history, the school gradually developed into the exemplary private school it is today.
The Cathedral School continues to honor its Greek Orthodox Christian and Hellenic heritage while welcoming cultural and religious diversity.
Students from as far away as India, China, and New Zealand now join Greek-American students from New York City to experience the dynamic academic experience at the Cathedral School.
Under the leadership of principal Theodore P. Kusulas, the school continues to flourish. As Mr. K, noted, “Our high standards, our nurturing community spirit, and our commitment to the overall development of our students are what our TCS families value.”
Applications are currently being accepted for the 2016-2017 school year for nursery through 8th grade.
