Becca Brannan '13
My name is Becca, and I’m a junior at Cathedral. The decision to come to Cathedral was by far the biggest and best decision I have made thus far in my life. The atmosphere at Cathedral is very inviting and it feels like a family. The teachers all genuinely care for each student and his/her success. There are co-curricular opportunities for everyone at Cathedral regardless of age, interests or skill level. Cathedral also does a great job of preparing students for college-- whether it’s sitting down and talking about possible future plans or helping pick out appropriate classes. If a student struggles in a subject, help is always available. All students can be successful at Cathedral because the staff and faculty are committed to caring for the needs (academic, personal and spiritual) of all of its students.
When I first made the decision to come to Cathedral for seventh grade, I was nervous and unsure of how my first day would go. It was fantastic! The teachers helped all of us get acquainted with each other. After that first day, I knew I would succeed at Cathedral. As I entered my freshman year, there were more new students joining our class. Again, I was nervous as to how I would get along with all these new people. There was no need to be nervous. During the ninth grade year, many events are planned specifically to help students get to know one another. For example, the first day of ninth grade is spent with Link Crew, a group of junior and seniors that plan “getting to know you” activities. Ninth graders also have a special Homecoming event that is organized by some of the teachers.
As a current junior I have become comfortable with myself and my peers. We are all able to come together at sporting events and cheer our team on. I have also become more involved at Cathedral. I’m a junior officer for SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), a member of Optimist Club, a Student Ambassador, a peer tutor, and an athlete. Cathedral is an amazing school that offers something for everybody. Make a great decision--choose Cathedral!
