Cathedral High School is an all-girls, private, Roman Catholic high school in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. It is located within the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York.


The school was established in 1905 by the Sisters of Charity. It moved to its current location in 1973. Enrollment is open to young women of all cultures and faiths. There are plenty of college preparatory courses as well as AP classes such as calculus, biology, history, Spanish, English literature and physics. A course on religion is mandatory on an annual basis, however, the school accepts girls of all faiths.
