History

Cathedral Preparatory School and Seminary was established in 1914 in Brooklyn at 555 Washington Avenue as Cathedral College of the Immaculate Conception, a six-year minor seminary, with a four-year high school track and a two-year college track. Upon completion of the six-year program, students still discerning a priestly vocation would be assigned to a major seminary. This six-year program was in place until 1967, when Cathedral College of the Immaculate Conception was established as a four-year college seminary in Douglaston, New York. The college would continue as a four-year independent academic institution until 1988, when it changed to a college seminary residence and pre-theology program titled Cathedral Seminary Residence of the Immaculate Conception.[4]

A second campus in Elmhurst was established in 1963 at 56-25 92nd Street as Cathedral Preparatory Seminary. In 1985 the Brooklyn campus was closed and the Elmhurst location served both Kings and Queens Counties.[5] Currently, students from both the Diocese of Brooklyn and the Diocese of Rockville Centre attend the school, as well as one student from the Archdiocese of New York. Since 1968, each summer Cathedral has hosted the Father Edward W. Troike Leadership Program for young men of 6th and 7th grades, as well as incoming freshmen.[6]

Since 1914 nearly 4,500 students have received their high school diplomas from Cathedral Prep. The school alumni include Cardinals, Bishops, Priests, Religious and laity.[4]
