The S T R I V E  program aims to assist talented student-athletes to achieve at the highest levels of performance in their various sports and to help them with their personal education and vocational development.

It is widely recognised that Sport, Health and Physical Education play an important part in an individual's holistic growth and development. Cathedral College Wangaratta's Athlete Development Program, S T R I V E, offers students the opportunity to develop these skills further. The program is currently partnering with the Murray Bushrangers in order to cater for AFL athletes and Mr Brett Harvey from ELEV8 Basketball Program for students excelling in basketball.
