Cathedral School for Boys (abbreviated as CSB or merely Cathedral) is a private boys' primary school located on Nob Hill in San Francisco, affiliated with Grace Cathedral. It was founded in 1957 and is notable for its choir, the Grace Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys. In recent years, the school has undergone extensive renovations and additions, most notably, an extension to the main building recently completed.

In September 1957 Cathedral School For Boys was opened in the Cathedral's bell towers. It was founded by the Dean, C. Julian Bartlett and parents seeking an alternative to the other private schools in San Francisco. On June 3, 1965 the school's current building was created inside the Cathedral's close. One year later on September 12, 1966, the new school building was opened. In 1996, the current building was expanded to create rooms for the kindergarten and 8th grade. Recent years have seen a number of new renovations to the campus, including a renovated gymnasium, auditorium, science lab and media-arts center.
