    From its faculty and staff to academics and athletics, Catholic Memorial School is thriving, and so are its students. Graduates matriculate to the nation's most competitive schools, incoming students are being challenged by new experiential learning curricula that help the boys find their fit. CM is also the smallest school in the Catholic Conference — there is no back row here, and faculty know each boy. It's a truly great place to spend six years.

    CM has been an excellent fit for my son who has completed middle school and is now a freshman. He's had excellent opportunities to play many different sports and participate in several clubs and service opportunities. High academic standards and dedicated faculty have pushed him to excel and he is looking forward to more high-level classes in high school. The best part of CM is the community and the support that's given. He commutes to school from the suburbs and has made friends from all over Boston and the surrounding towns. If you want to be very involved in your school and have great opportunities to learn, CM is a great choice.
    Our son has just moved up from the middle school to the high school at CM. We are so pleased with his growth and preparation for high school. CM is a diverse community of great people; it's a place where everyone knows your name. Academics are top notch; every athletic and extracurricular activity you could hope for, and some you never knew existed, are all here for your son to enjoy. But what's more important is the incredible faculty and staff support and encouragement of our son to get involved. We can't rate on college readiness as our son is just a Freshman now, but at the rate he is going, we have no doubt he will be completely prepared for college.
