Kolbe Cathedral High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school in Bridgeport, Connecticut. It is located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgeport.

Background[edit]

Kolbe Boys High School and Cathedral Girls High School opened in the 1960s. Kolbe (opened 1963) was staffed by the Franciscans and Cathedral (opened 1964) by the Daughters of the Holy Spirit. In June 1976 Kolbe and Cathedral merged into a co-educational secondary school.[2] Today, Kolbe Cathedral offers an affordable option for working families in greater Bridgeport seeking a Christian alternative to the city's public high schools.

In November 2014, senior Ambar Romero was honored at the White House as one of three national finalists in the National Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge, meeting President Barack Obama.[3]
