It is with great pride that The Cathedral School announced another extremely successful year for their graduating class of 2016. With the careful guidance by high school admissions director, Juliana Fazzone, and in partnership with their families, this year’s graduating students navigated a highly competitive and challenging high school placement process with remarkable results. Every eighth grade student was admitted to their first high school choice. Highly competitive New York City independent school acceptances included Horace Mann, United Nations International School, Loyola, Marymount, and Columbia Prep. Cathedral students had similar success in the public school application process. Those who applied to specialized high schools qualified with high scores and were admitted to Bronx Science and Lehman College School for American Studies. Additionally, three Cathedral students were admitted to Eleanor Roosevelt High School and to Beacon–all first choices for these applicants.
As any student or parent going through the high school admissions process knows, the experience can be stressful and overwhelming. New York City has one of the most extensive public and private school networks in the country and finding the right high school placement can be a daunting task. The Cathedral School provides individualized support to its seventh and eighth grade students as they navigate this process. A key strength of the school’s admissions counseling is that the admissions director knows each student exceptionally well and has an expert knowledge of the diverse and competitive high schools in New York City. With these supports in place, Cathedral students have every opportunity to be accepted to and succeed in the finest high schools in New York. Year after year, students return to discuss how well prepared they are for the next academic step in their lives. Many alumni attribute their success to Cathedral’s small teacher to student ratios, their dedicated faculty, and a learning environment that cultivates critical thinking and writing. Cathedral students graduate as confident learners and problem solvers who have a passion for life long learning.
This year’s 2016 class continues Cathedral’s legacy of excelling in high school placement. Over the last several years students have been admitted to exceptional schools such as, Trinity, Sacred Heart, Dalton, Ethical Culture, Fordham Prep, LaGuardia, Brooklyn Tech, Bard, Stuyvesant and many more. By providing a classical education for the modern world, the Cathedral school prides itself in preparing its students for the most competitive secondary schools in New York City and for the complexities and challenges of the world beyond.
