Malden Catholic High School

Malden Catholic High School Photo #1
Since 1932, Malden Catholic, an independent, college-preparatory school sponsored by the Xaverian Brothers, has created a family-like community of faith that has fashioned young people of character from students entrusted by parents to our care.
A codivisional Catholic high school for young men and, beginning in 2018, young women, Malden Catholic strives to maintain the intimacy of its beginnings as a parish high school that prepared generations of students for rewarding college careers, success in a variety of professions and endeavors, and meaningful personal lives.
Codivisional education is an educational model that will offer your child the best of both worlds: rigorous, single-gender academics and integrated social and extracurricular opportunities after school.
A unique model among Catholic schools in the greater Boston area, codivisional means that Malden Catholic features two separate academic divisions, the School for Boys and the School for Girls, with their own single-gender classes. Students have opportunities for socialization and collaboration before and after school, but not during school hours. Malden Catholic is not a "Co-ed" school, because academic classes do not integrate boys and girls together.
The Community as a whole works diligently to ensure that a Malden Catholic education continues to be available to a variety of deserving students from diverse backgrounds and abilities, including international students.
It is our mission to deliver the message of the Xaverian Brothers as well as our message of spiritual and academic distinction in a highly competitive market.
