Kolbe Cathedral High School is a Catholic co-educational, four-year urban high school established by the Diocese of Bridgeport dedicated to serving a diverse, multicultural population. It currently has an enrollment of about 325 students. Kolbe Cathedral High School is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and the Connecticut Department of Education. The professional staff includes religious and lay members. Admission is open to all students who, on the basis of a placement test and admission process, qualify for admission.
The mission is to empower students with knowledge, skills and Catholic values. Members of the school community are expected to “Work Hard and Be Nice.” The school and family form a partnership to foster the development of young Christian men and women academically, spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically. Successful completion of four years at Kolbe Cathedral produces an individual who exhibits caring for others in the spirit of Christianity, sharing of knowledge, skills and talents for the good of others, and strength of character that dares to make a difference by living the Gospel message.
"KCHS is a fantastic high school. It really makes you a well rounded individual and they have amazing faculty. I can honestly say every teacher I had I was close to, and they really cared about our education. As a current sophomore of Fairfield University, Kolbe has prepared me with many of my main courses including religion, English, Spanish, and Calculus. This school is a great environment and really helps the students in every way possible. Without Kolbe, I wouldn't have my current job through the ECHO program, and I wouldn't be in touch with my spiritual side." -Student, Alex Sayan '15
