Trinity Cathedral’s neighboring elementary school, Marion-Sterling is a pre-K-8 Cleveland Metropolitan School District 2014-2015 Investment School. It is located at 3033 Central Avenue, less than one mile from Trinity Cathedral. Each year, CMSD targets the lowest 10-15 percent of schools for immediate and dramatic action. According to CMSD, the investment schools represent “not only our clearest need, but also our greatest opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our students.”
For many years, Trinity members and friends have been offering their time, talents and treasures in a variety of ways to help make a difference in the lives of Marion-Sterling students and their families. Current needs and opportunities are listed below.
