  • 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.
