Holy Name Central Catholic Junior/Senior High School Reviews

Amazing school where teachers, administrators and coaches care about student success, are available and engaged. I went to HN decades ago and have two students there now. The HN community is as strong as ever yet evolving with the times, investing in a Wind Turbine program, a STEM partnership with WPI, a leading Mock Trial program, Theatre, Music, international travel and mission trips, community service and competitive athletics with levels for all students. HN is diverse, not just racially and socioeconomically, but also with diversity of thought which is missing from many schools today. Students are "loved at home, loved at school, and loved by God." I am truly blessed that my children are part of the HN community where they are being well-prepared for college, making friends from all over Central MA, embracing Catholicism and theology, and growing into positive, caring, charitable young adults - thanks in large part to the HN environment.

I am the person who is very inclined to music. The reason why I give good review for this school is not only because I am the alumni of the school, but also honestly this school made my teenager life awesome. If you are an athlete, musician, or an artist, the Holy Name will be the best fit school for you in the area. All the sports, music, and art department are very supportive for the students whoever want to join and have an extremely fantastic experience. Also in overall, the school is very family-like community so I could settle in very shortly even though I am the international student from another country.
I would highly recommend this school if you are looking for strongly supportive school community.
Holy Name has been a part of my family for many years. Not only am I an alum but a parent of two daughters who have attended the junior/senior high school.
It was both my husband and I decision to enroll our daughters in a school with high moral and ethical standards along with academic excellence. My girls had the opportunity to participate in many social and extra-curricular activities in the arts and athletics that are not offered at other local high schools. The administration is constantly communicating with the parents, faculty and staff to keep everyone up to date on what is going on and is continually striving to make Holy Name a state of the art learning facility for all its students.
