Cathedral School of Saint Mary enriches students through our religious and academic curriculum as we help to form the spiritual, intellectual, social and physical development of every student entrusted to us. We are committed to providing students with a superior academic climate, a loving and supportive school community and opportunities to celebrate cultural diversity and demonstrate Christian values through Catholic sacraments, traditions and community service projects. The School is part of the Austin Diocese and is accredited by the Texas Catholic Conference Education Department (TCCED) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council (SACS).
Cathedral School of Saint Mary was founded in 1866 and is the longest, continuously running Catholic school in Texas. While the building, curriculum and faculty have changed over the last 147 years, the values we seek to instill in our students remain the same. The school makes use of a blended learning model which incorporates technology into every class. Blended learning at Cathedral School of Saint Mary is a differentiated curriculum that enriches the student learning experience through teacher-student interaction, technology and hands-on interaction. Students in grades 3rd through 8th are provided with a school-issued laptop to use during the school day. Small student-teacher ratio allows teachers to meet individual needs and assist students in mastering material.
