Catholic Memorial

Tel: (617)469-8000
Grades: 7-12 | 722 students
Catholic Memorial is an academic faith community for young men in grades 7-12.
We endeavor to instill in our students a mature commitment to the demands of Catholic Christian witness and a lifelong love of learning.
Catholic Memorial serves a range of socioeconomic backgrounds and academic abilities.
We embrace the diversity of the neighborhoods and surrounding towns of Boston by providing young men with a challenging college preparatory experience rooted in Gospel values.
We want our students to explore their academic, athletic, creative, and spiritual potential as educated gentlemen and citizens.
And we want their faith and ideals to find expression in service to God, neighbor, and the Church.
With a dedicated faculty, staff, and supportive parents we create within our program an ethic of caring for the needs of each student.
In keeping with the tradition of Blessed Edmund Ignatius Rice and the Congregation of Christian Brothers, we foster a passion for social justice and respect for the dignity of those treated least, lost, and last.
