Cretin-Derham Hall High School (CDH) is a private, co-educational Catholic high school located in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, it is co-sponsored by the Brothers of the Christian Schools and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Cretin High School was named for Joseph Crétin, the first Roman Catholic Bishop of Saint Paul, while Derham Hall High School was named for Hugh Derham, a Minnesotan farmer who donated money to start an all-female Catholic boarding school. The school describes itself as committed to Christian values and academic excellence. As a college preparatory school, it seeks to prepare each student for success in both post-secondary education and in life, through academic rigor and commitment to service.

Seantrel Henderson (born January 21, 1992) is an American football offensive tackle for the University of Miami. He attended Cretin-Derham Hall High School and originally signed a letter of intent to play college football at the University of Southern California, but was released from his commitment in July 2010 and eventually committed to the University of Miami.
Tom Lemming called Henderson "a cross between Jonathan Ogden and Orlando Pace", two of the best offensive tackles in the NFL over the past decade, while Sports Illustrated described him "probably the most polished lineman of the past decade."
