St. John's Cathedral High School

St. John's Cathedral High School was a Roman Catholic high school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin associated with the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist which operated from 1842, when it was founded as a school for boys (in the basement of the church at what is now the northwest corner of Jackson and State Streets)[1] to 1976. When it closed due to financial problems and declining enrollment, it was the oldest Catholic high school in Milwaukee.[2][3]
