School Overview

Catholic Memorial School is a college preparatory school for boys founded in the spirit of Blessed Edmund Rice and guided by the Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Christian Brothers Education. It is a faith and learning community dedicated to transforming boys' lives through academics, arts, athletics, and campus ministry. We challenge students to pursue excellence, embrace gospel values and lead through service.

Highlights

Currently, summer construction and renovations are underway which will result in the following:

 

  • The current cafeteria space will be transformed to house a new students' commons, create a flexible space allowing group meetings and presentations, as well as providing improved dining options
  • A new health and wellness center, a state of the art facility for all students seeking counsel on sports medicine and health fitness, and
  • Two 21st century classrooms creating innovative and flexible learning spaces

Academic Offerings

Our High School program offers an Honors/Advanced Placement (AP) curriculum in addition to a challenging college preparatory program. Our middle school classes are interactive, inquiry-driven and collaborative to satisfy the unique needs, curiosity and energy of our youngest students.

Advanced Placement (AP) - Science, History, Math, Computer Science, English, Art and World Languages
