We offer a strong spiritual and academic foundation PLUS a whole lot more!


We Adapt. We adapt to the individual personalities and learning behaviors of each student to ensure every boy and girl receives the one-on-one attention and personalized guidance they sometimes need and so profoundly deserve.

We Collaborate. We collaborate with our school parents so that together we can calibrate a child’s learning experiences week to week and grade to grade, ultimately maximizing his or her God-given potential both inside and outside the classroom.

We Connect. We sustain a school-wide environment that connects Teacher and Parent, Parent and Parent, Student and Student, and eventually – long after they’ve graduated – Student and School. As a result, in addition to a one-of-a-kind learning experience, we are facilitating meaningful relationships that can last a lifetime.

We Innovate. From classroom technology to new thinking in curriculum design, our leadership evaluates, pilots and implements innovations in learning and teaching so that our students can benefit from local and global best practices in Education.

We Prepare. Through passion, hard work, commitment, professional development, and a deep personal pride in seeing each and every child become the young man or woman he or she is meant to be.  We prepare students to shine in high school better than any team of faculty and staff in Massachusetts.

Learn How to Think. Whereas some schools prioritize rote memorization, standardized testing, or language immersion, St. Mary’s advanced curriculum and diverse extracurricular activities specially nurture your child’s ability to think creatively. Here, students apply their new knowledge to see and solve problems in different ways, ultimately leading to young men and women who know how to think, not just what to think.

Feel Accepted. Whether he or she laughs loudly or smiles shyly, excels in the classroom or needs extra help now and again, every child feels unconditionally accepted at St. Mary’s – lovable quirks and all – encouraging your son or daughter to focus on what they are learning and not worry about what others may think of them.

Love Learning. Their young mind opened wide by the endless possibilities of new knowledge, St. Mary's inspires your child to love learning. This newfound love kindles imaginations and fuels curiosity. Our students want to learn more.

See People Differently. Every morning, hundreds of Boston’s brightest boys and girls commute to St. Mary’s from vastly dissimilar backgrounds, life experiences and home towns. Learning side-by-side in vibrant and multi-cultural classrooms, our students discover that intelligence, laughter and friendship are colorblind, forever empowering them to see their world – and all the people in it –differently.

Do the Right Thing. From the earliest grade levels, we equip students with the fundamental qualities of good character, so that in addition to a clear understanding of Right versus Wrong, our boys and girls make better life decisions when inevitably faced with a tough choice away from home or school.

Believe in Yourself. Working hard to meet the high expectations of teachers who see potential as just a starting point; thriving in classes that are a grade level ahead of their peers at other schools; and excelling in local and state competitions for Writing, Science or activities like Odyssey of the Mind, your son or daughter develops a self-confidence at St. Mary’s – a belief in oneself – that endures long after they’ve left Brook Road.

Experience a Real Middle School. While more and more Catholic high schools add seventh and eighth grades, we provide your son or daughter with expert middle school teachers in an authentic middle school environment. Beyond preparing your child academically, the St. Mary’s middle school experience cultivates your student’s blossoming self-confidence and emergent capacity to think for themselves.

Attend the Best High Schools in Massachusetts. Our 8th Graders are consistently accepted into the very best high schools in Massachusetts – from elite Catholic high schools to world-class independent schools – thanks to teachers who challenge and prepare them; classmates who accept and encourage them; and parents who love and support them.
