JOYS OF CATHOLIC EDUCATION
Welcome to Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Boston! If you are a parent, grandparent, or a friend or other relative, we deeply appreciate your interest in offering the child in your life a quality Catholic education.
Catholic educators in the Archdiocese of Boston work each day to develop each of our students’ God given gifts. Catholic schools offer a solid foundation in literacy, mathematics history and science, while teaching the Catholic faith. It is our goal to develop the whole child: mind, body and spirit. We do this by knowing our students and their families. We know understand that to teach a child, we need to partner with those who love them the most. We also understand that the faith placed in each is a sacred trust.
Schools in the Archdiocese of Boston offer a variety of programs for diverse groups of learners. While some schools focus on STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art and Mathematics), other schools provide additional opportunities for students in the fine arts, including special programs in drama and music, languages and public speaking. Still other schools offer a classical Catholic education with a focus on learning Latin while integrating a robust study of history. According to our most recent assessment scores, high school graduation rates, and strong matriculation rates into some of the most select schools in our area and country, our students are meeting great success.
We are proud of the long-standing tradition our schools have in producing great leaders and citizens. We assist our students in developing a foundation of faith that will serve them their entire lives, a foundation that supports them in all that they endeavor to accomplish. We believe that our students go further with faith and that makes all the difference.
If you have a student who is ready to enter school or is looking for a new challenge, please contact one of our schools to learn more.

We believe we are Catholic schools for all children, welcoming places of evangelization, where we develop Saints and scholars using just and equitable practices.
We believe our schools are models of the Holy Family where children are loved, parents are partners, and faculty and staff are supported in their faith and professional lives.
We believe we are a joyful, bold and daring missionary community that spreads the Word and celebrates the hope embodied in our schools.
“The benefits of the Catholic education that our children received are immeasurable. It provided them a first class education, excellent character development through their involvement with athletic teams and extracurricular activities and a solid spiritual foundation through their interactions with Campus Ministry and the overall mission of the school. Every day that they helped them to develop into better students, as well as, better people and they left the school not only extremely prepared for college but prepared for life.” -Kristi L.
