Since 1932, Malden Catholic High School, an independent, college preparatory school, has crafted both a tradition of academic excellence and a family-like community of faith at its fully modern campus in Malden. It is these two interwoven priorities that define the unique experience of a Malden Catholic student.
Sponsored by the Xavarian Brotherhood, Malden Catholic seeks to instill in its young men high personal standards, so that their quality of character can aid them beyond their years here. Though the school has seen great success and growth since its humble beginnings as a small parish high school, it strives to maintain the intimacy of such origins provided for generations of young men bound for rewarding university experiences and successful careers. Students have gone on to pursue goals at such schools as Harvard, MIT, Boston College and Northeastern. The young men here are fostered not just by caring faculty and staff, but also by the community at large.
This nurturing structure as a whole works diligently to ensure that a Malden Catholic education continues to be available to a variety of students by providing more than $1 million annually in financial aid.
Today, Malden Catholic values and celebrates the size and diversity of its community, providing a wide range of both curricular and extracurricular programs. The student body is not only comprised of representatives from more than 40 different communities, but also international students from as far as Korea, China and Europe. The school offers an impressive 13 advanced placement courses, and recently established the St. Francis Xavier Scholars Program to honor students who score in the top 95th percentile on the school’s placement tests. Equal care and consideration is given to the development of skills in those students who may be struggling academically through the Brother Kevin Program, which allows for smaller classes and individualized instruction led by a learning specialist. Recognizing and appreciating the variety of talents the students possess, the school strives to be sensitive to individual differences, calling on each student to develop their full potential.
In addition to a proud athletic tradition, the school offers 30 extracurricular clubs in which each student can continue to develop high standards of scholarship, citizenship, and personal responsibility. Ranging from an award-winning Robotics Team to Model U.N. and Lancers-In-Action social outreach group to Mock Trial and Math Team, there is truly a place for each young man to feel integral, proud, and at home at Malden Catholic.
The Malden Catholic Community embraces the challenge of its tradition, expressed in the school’s motto Plus Ultra, which means “More Beyond.” In a highly competitive market, Malden Catholic is distinguished by its commitment to the spiritual, intellectual, creative, social, and physical development of its students, along with a dedication to the message of the Xaverian Brothers. The school offers value for today, and excellence for a lifetime. For consideration, apply online at www.maldencatholic.org.
