Cathedral at Pompei is a multicultural, urban, parish school that exemplifies the principles of the Catholic Church and the teaching of Jesus Christ.  We strive towards educating the whole child: mind, body, and spirit.  The faculty and staff, as part of Our Lady of Pompei/St. Peter Parish, work in conjunction with the community at large and our school families to develop academic intelligence while fostering integrity and respect for the students, thereby encouraging them to take their place in the Church and Society in the 21st  Century.

 Father Daniel Caruso was inspired to seek the priesthood shortly after his Confirmation by Bishop Thomas Costello at St. Daniel’s Church. When the new Pastor, Reverend Gene Yennock arrived in the parish, teenaged Daniel Caruso became especially aware of the kind and happy church leaders who served as witnesses of the Faith. Observing the work of these model priests led him to Le Moyne College and the St. Mary’s Seminary and University, in Baltimore, Maryland. (St. Mary’s is the oldest Roman Catholic Seminary in the United States.) Reverend Daniel Caruso was ordained on June 4, 1994.  Since 2001, Father Daniel Caruso served as pastor of St. Mary of the Assumption and St. Paul’s Church in Binghamton. In 2011, as the newly appointed pastor of Our Lady of Pompei/St. Peter Church, he quickly became a beloved parish priest who guides Cathedral Academy at Pompei School.

 Cathedral Academy at Pompei is both a privilege and joy to be part of. It’s warm and loving atmosphere is coupled with a strenuous, competitive academic curriculum that makes us stand out and be noticed.  The children and people in the building are a constant reminder and example of God’s work every day. CAP represents what our great country stands for and was founded on… the welcoming of hard working immigrants that’s goal is to provide the best opportunities for their children. We couldn’t be more proud that our 3 boys received their elementary education from Pompei . Their success at the high school and college levels and their deep spiritual faith is reflective of those formative years at Pompei. It’s a great place to be…come and visit…you will fall in love!!!
