Very Rev. Albert Laforet, Jr.”
Welcome to Cathedral School of Saint Mary,
Cathedral School of Saint Mary has been in continuous operation for more than 144 years. We are the largest ministry of the Cathedral of Saint Mary, the seat of the Diocese of Austin, and home to our bishop, Joe Vasquez STL, D.D.
The Cathedral School occupies a special place in Texas both physically and spiritually. We stand in the heart of downtown Austin, the capital of Texas. Our school is enmeshed in the rich and vibrant history of Texas with educational opportunities right outside our door. Our classroooms are not only located inside our historical buildings, but include the Texas State capital, the University of Texas LBJ Library, the O. Henry Museum, The Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, The French Legation Museum, to name just a few. Our classrooms roll out into the surrounding central Texas hill country and beyond.
We also stand as a witness to the transformative effect of a Catholic education. Throughout our daily routine, we take time to make all things sacred and reflective for our students, faculty and staff. This allows us to incorporate our Catholic identity in all we do. Our faculty and staff are committed to forming students both spiritually and physically, thus preparing them for the life of an active and engaged christian.
Our school community is as diverse as our city. We welcome families from over 35 zip codes in and around the Austin area. Our diversity is our strength. We believe that people can come from all walks of life and succeed. We believe that it is through this diversity that we discover not only the uniqueness of others, but our own unique, Christ centered place in this large world.
Please, come in for a visit. We welcome you and your family. Come see what a Catholic education at the Cathedral School of Saint Mary is all about.
Yours in Christ,
Mr. Robert LeGros, M.S.A.
