We also encourage you to hear what current parents have to say about The School of the Cathedral, as well as the perspective from two kindergarten students about their typical day at school:

With the uncertainties in the world because of the COVID-19, The School of the Cathedral feels it is important to give our students a sense of normalcy. Our school closed March 13th, 2020, and the next school day we continued our journey virtually through Google Classroom. We equipped the students with devices and work packets. Our online learning continued with great success! Learn more about our response, and visit our social media to see examples of our remote learning.




From Our Parents

Here are some things our parents have shared with us about their experience:

"Our family sincerely appreciates the transparency, consistent communication, and leadership shown by the SCMOQ organization, both before and throughout the pandemic."

- Joshua S., parent of students in grades 1 and kindergarten

"Enrolling my daughter, Kennedy, at The School of the Cathedral was one of the best decisions I have made. As a new student to Cathedral, I was worried about the transition to middle school especially in the midst of the pandemic; needless to say I am beyond impressed. The teachers, staff, and students are great. Everyone is friendly, responsive & accommodating. Mr. Ford is a great teacher. He immediately made my daughter feel comfortable & welcomed. The hybrid model ensures my kid has the opportunity interact with other students and receive in person instruction. Ms. Czarnecki is also fantastic, I appreciate her efforts to ensure my daughter was in rigorous classes that encouraged her academic growth." 

- Natasha, parent of student in grade 6

“I have been completely blown away by how quickly and adeptly the School of the Cathedral has gone to online instruction. It is as if the school had been doing this for decades. I can tell you that as a professor at Johns Hopkins, I have found this transition challenging, but Cathedral has kept it moving as if nothing had changed. It is an inspiration to me.” 

- Noah, parent of students in grades 8 and 6

“We have been so impressed with Cathedral and the online learning. The teachers and staff have been amazing. They have kept our daughter engaged and inspired while also allowing our family to adjust to this new way of learning.   In these ever-changing times, the ability to have a sense of normalcy with SCMOQ has been invaluable.” 

- Sheehan, parent of students in grades 7, 6, 2, and pre-first
