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.
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
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
Languages - Latin, Spanish, Mandarin, French, Irish Studies and Italian
Before School Program
The Scholars Program was implemented for students achieving academic excellence & then selected through an interview process. It includes many project based/experimental learning opportunities. Some of their required meetings are held prior to school.
Catholic Memorial Television (CMTV) - Students are involved in all aspects of the Catholic Memorial's daily news broadcast (write, produce, direct and provide technical support). They produce documentaries and other short films, create commercials, and gain practical experience behind the camera by filming all school events - academic and extra-curricular.
After School Program
Athletics - Offered in Fall, Winter and Spring
Academic - Teacher and student facilitated Homework Club or individual faculty post office hours for individual or group sessions.
Clubs - 30 opportunities available for students to be involved. Two of the more popular clubs are the award-winning Speech and Debate team which competes locally and nationally and the Model UN program. Model UN allows students to delve into current global issues ranging from the UN Security Council resolutions on Arms reduction to matters of human rights and human trafficking, developing their public speaking and research skills.
Typically - all activities end at 5:00 p.m. unless there is a game or a competition happening.
In the fall and spring, students wear a polo shirt, dress pants, and shoes. In the winter, students wear an Oxford-style shirt and CM tie with dress pants and shoes.
Student performance data displayed below is from Next Generation MCAS results. For more data on schools, please visit the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) website. For schools with multiple campuses, the data below represents all schools in that network, not just the single school. If data is not shown, it is not available for that school.
IMPORTANT NOTE: DESE did not issue school, district, or state accountability determinations for the 2019-2020 school year due to the cancellation of state assessments and school closures related to COVID-19. As a result, there is no student performance data available from the state for school year 2019-2020.
