History

In September 1957 Cathedral School For Boys was opened in the Cathedral's bell towers. It was founded by the Dean, C. Julian Bartlett and parents seeking an alternative to the other private schools in San Francisco. On June 3, 1965 the school's current building was created inside the Cathedral's close.
