Cathedral High School is an independent, college-preparatory Catholic high school operated by the Christian Brothers in partnership with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.  It enrolls 735 primarily low-income Latino and African American male students and 90% of the student body receives need based aid and/or academic scholarships.  A W. M. Keck Foundation grant is supporting the construction of a visual and performing arts complex to replace an antiquated industrial arts building that is inadequate to support Cathedral’s comprehensive arts curriculum.  The instructional facility will provide classrooms, studios for the creative arts, television production areas, and rooms for music and theatrical arts instruction and practice.  A new 350 seat theater will host student performances and events throughout the year and be available for use by local civic and arts groups.  Weekend and summer arts programming will be offered to middle school students from Catholic schools that lack arts instruction and interested students from nearby girl’s high schools will participate in Cathedral’s dramatic productions.
