2020-21 School Year Updates

Catholic Memorial plans to open its doors to students and faculty for the first time since March. Learn more about our preparation, plans, and policies below, and find resources and links to help you get ready for the start of school.

Here's Our Plan.

This fall, CM plans to open its doors to students and faculty for the first time since March. We will operate under a hybrid learning model, one flexible enough to balance an in-person learning capacity of 50 percent with 100 percent online learning accessibility.
To learn more, watch this video from the Fall Reopening Webinar from our leadership team.

Flexible Model

As a community, we have undertaken a comprehensive approach to our planning process, which has been ongoing since April. CM faculty have even spent six weeks creating content and lesson plans for this hybrid model.

We believe that, in order to create a transformative educational experience for young men, this hybrid model allows our campus to flex its in-person learning capacity within a moment’s notice.

“Instead of seeing this new environment as limiting, I believe that many of our faculty are considering the opportunities and potential in this ecosystem.”

Asst. Head of School & Head of the Middle School
