The Madeleine Choir School is a private, Catholic, K through grade eight, school founded in part to preserve the ancient tradition of sacred liturgical music. The school fosters a strong program of moral and character formation, and seeks to provide a thought-provoking and comprehensive curriculum. The Choir School seeks to nurture the whole child, with attention to the intellectual, physical spiritual, and emotional, well-being of each student entrusted to its care. The Choir School preserves and furthers the choral art primarily in service to the public worship life of the Cathedral of the Madeleine, and additionally through concerts, performance tours and recordings. Through its academic coursework, character formation, social activities and athletics, the Choir School works to form responsible world citizens who will serve as civic and church leaders in generations to come.
