APAP believes that pay transparency is a critical step toward pay equity and benefits both the job seeker and the employer. For those reasons, we are now requiring that employers include a salary range in all new job postings.
Postings that are backfilled from another association’s career center may not include salary information.

About Cathedral School for Boys
Cathedral School for Boys is a K-8 Episcopal boys school, located in the Nob Hill neighborhood of San Francisco, CA.
Our Mission is:
To provide an excellent education for boys at the elementary level.
To attract a diverse student body of strong academic potential.
To provide a school committed to intellectual inquiry and rigor, centered in the Episcopal tradition, respectful of and welcoming to people of all religious traditions and beliefs.
To develop social responsibility through exemplary programs of outreach and service.
To create a community bonded by open-heartedness, hope, compassion and concern.
At Cathedral, we believe that we must continue to define what it means to educate and raise boys.
We devote each day to the spirited dialogue, dynamic lessons, and intentional character-building that guide each young boy to engage in the way that best fits him, while he simultaneously develops empathy and respect for the world around him.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Justice and Belonging at Cathedral School for Boys:
At Cathedral School for Boys, diversity, equity, inclusion, justice and belonging (DEIJB) are essential to
our approach t...o education and to the development of a just society.
Cathedral School’s commitment to DEIJB is founded in the promise of all Episcopal Schools, “to strive
for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.” This promise
grounds our approach in the recognition of the social and moral responsibilities that we owe one another
and in the benefits that we all receive when we share common values.
As such, each member of the Cathedral community commits to:
• Engaging in conversations with EMPATHY and CURIOSITY, and listening to recognize the
presence, ideas, and beliefs of all individuals within the CSB community;
• Practicing RESPECT and acting with COURAGE to speak up and speak out to stand up for
what is right even when it is challenging or unpopular;
• Upholding the process of reflection, healing, and repair, holding ourselves with
ACCOUNTABILITY and accepting RESPONSIBILITY for our actions.
Cathedral is committed to cultivating a community of people in the many ways they identify, including by
race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, family structure, language, learning styles,
physical ability, religion, culture, and socioeconomic background that embraces the broadest possible
range of beliefs, values, experiences, and perspectives. Our community is comprised of people who value
the diverse perspectives of others and who desire to learn continually about themselves and from one
another. We believe that only with open minds and open hearts, our Cathedral community will thrive and
experience belonging, both within the walls of our classrooms and beyond.
