The Cathedral Scholars Honors Program (CSHP) seeks to challenge academically gifted students on their individual journeys through high school. Through individual guidance and academic planning, Cathedral Scholars learn to set goals and work to achieve them during their four years at CCHS. The students in the CSHP are expected to be a part of the school community, participate in meaningful service projects that benefit the greater community, and engage in an academically rigorous program of studies. The Cathedral Scholars Honors Program is a highly competitive program. After registering, incoming Freshmen are invited to apply to the program based on their eighth grade academic records and High School Placement Test scores.
