From Catholic Memorial School

Rigorous. Challenging. Inspiring. CM is an academic institution that stands with any school in the Greater Boston area. We emphasize relational learning, and we provide a liberal arts program with an emphasis on inquiry, collaboration, and innovation.

It’s a style of education that inspires learning in every single student. We motivate the students who have not yet maximized their potential, and push the top students to the next level.

We encourage learning by doing, and discovering by inquiring. Teachers don’t just challenge students. Students challenge themselves. They learn new ways to learn, and use the skills they develop to achieve uncommon success in a way that’s actually pretty common around here.

At CM, we are redefining rigor. We don’t judge an assignment’s merit by how long it takes students to complete. Instead, we ask students to ask big questions, research, present and defend their ideas, and apply principles they’ve learned.

    Catholic Memorial (CM) School is an amazing academic community for growing your young boy to a strong young man, grounded in faith, brotherhood, and community service. The commitment and dedication of President Dr. Peter Folan, the teachers, the advisors, and the administration as a whole are unquestionable. The investments in its academic programs, extracurricular activities and the facility itself have provided structure and enrichment to our son these last four years. We have been particularly impressed with CM's agility to institute a solid ELearning curriculum during the COVID-19 pandemic, responding proactively and creatively to the creation of virtual programs to support the boys in such unprecedented times. We are indebted for the support of the Guidance Office during the college application and acceptance process. Their support was the underpinning to our success, with our son now prepared to enter the next chapter of his academic journey. With gratitude, CM!

    We have been part of the Catholic Memorial community for 8 years and will continue to have a student there for another 5.... it just keeps getting better and better! The academic programs are excellent, not only do they prepare the students well, but the curriculum is relevant and thoughtful. The teachers truly know the students as individuals and provide encouragement for the students to excel in all areas. The administration is extremely organized and the parent communication is outstanding.
