Young Disciples

Saint Matthew Cathedral School prides itself on providing a solid foundation in the Catholic faith. Our Preschool participates in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Religion Program, opening up young minds to the wonder, beauty, and truth of God’s presence in their lives and in the world!


Saint Matthew Cathedral School’s Preschool and Pre-K programs are designed to provide a safe, nurturing, structured learning environment to help prepare young students for Kindergarten. 


By integrating the HighScope curriculum into the program, children have direct hands-on experiences with materials.  This comprehensive child development program complies with Indiana standards. School readiness is promoted in the readiness content areas: Approaches to Learning; Language, Literacy, and Communication; Social and Emotional Development; Physical Development, Health, and Well-Being; and Arts and Sciences.
