The school has just over 500 students and draws students from El Paso County, Ciudad Juárez and New Mexico. College courses, taught at Cathedral High School in conjunction with El Paso Community College, afford junior and senior students the opportunity to complete their first year of college while still a Cathedral student.

The school considers its programs in Campus ministry, community service and religious education to be central to the incorporation of Catholic Christian spirituality into the daily lives of students.


Cathedral High School was founded in 1925. Although the school is owned and administered by the Diocese of El Paso, the Christian Brothers have been involved in the school since its foundation. Until the late 1950s the faculty of the school was composed entirely of Brothers.
