Mother Cabrini High School in New York City was founded in 1889, as a “residential school for young ladies”. Located in the Washington Heights section of New York City, the peaceful campus overlooks the Hudson River and remains as an institution of secondary education. Dedicated to the education of young women, Mother Cabrini High School seeks to shape the mind, soul, heart, and character of each student. The High School is familiar to many at the College. In 2011, our Academic Dean and several faculty met with the Principal and Administrators in order to strengthen our partnership and share our experience with the Justice Matters curriculum. Cabrini staff make the High School a regular part of the Staff Mission Institute. Touring the High School is one of the highlights of the two-day Institute. Recently, Mother Cabrini High School launched a video that features its mission and commitment to educating young women. The video tells the story of one young woman whose life was shaped at Mother Cabrini High School. The video is available here.
