Welcome to The School of the Cathedral!
I welcome you to The School of the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen! My name is Fiona Diemer, and I am our Director of Admissions. I am sorry I cannot meet you in person during these uncertain times, but while our school doors are closed, I invite you to explore our website and learn more about our wonderful school and community.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year. Please contact me, Fiona Diemer, at email@example.com if you would like to schedule a phone call or virtual meeting. I look forward to working with you and meeting you soon!
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, 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 has 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 remote learning experience:
“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 5 and 7
“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.” -Parent, grade 2“I am so impressed with the online instruction for 2nd grade! They are able to review past material and learn new information in exciting ways. And there is nothing better than seeing my daughter’s face light up when she gets to see her teachers and classmates online.” -Sheehan, parent of students in grades 1, 5, and 6
“I'm amazed how quickly and efficiently the school has been able to transition to distance learning. My daughter’s teacher hasn't missed a beat; she is an absolute rock star guiding the second graders through this! My daughter looks forward to her online time with her teacher and her friends (even if we tricked them into wearing their uniforms for April Fool’s Day...haha)! The teachers are so patient trying to get them all wrangled together. This has also made me realize that the teachers need to have statues made in their honor, weekly parades, and ALL the money in the world!” -Kim, parent of students in grades 2 and 4
“The spirit and strength of the Cathedral community has been shining since the school had to close the building and adapt to a virtual format. We have been so grateful and impressed with how closely in touch we still feel with the teachers, students, and other parents. Best of all, my kids are still actively learning and smile every time they see their friends and teachers online.” -Marjie, parent of students in grade 1 and 4
