About

Leadership

Welcome to Catholic Memorial and thank you for visiting our website.

Catholic Memorial is an outstanding school for boys that educates its students to grow into Christian gentlemen and Renaissance men whose hearts are filled with compassion and empathy for others. Founded in 1957 in the traditions of the Christian Brothers, CM has become known in New England as a premier college preparatory school. 
 
Catholic Memorial is a rich and supportive community that helps young men to identify strengths, learn and grow. We instill Catholic values and inspire our graduates to become lifelong learners. 
 
CM knows how to work with boys. We realize that the middle and high school years are the most valuable and formative time in the lives of young men. It’s a time when boys conceptualize their identities and define how they view the world. 
 
The CM community is full of wonderful role models, women and men, who ask every student to walk with them on a journey and seek truth in all things. Be it in conversations in our classrooms, finding inspiration in our art room, developing camaraderie through our athletic program, or traveling internationally and living in solidarity with the poor, our students are taught to live authentic lives and develop passions that will impact the world. 
 
The conversations that begin here in West Roxbury extend beyond Baker Street into a world of thoughts and ideas that expands students' horizons. 
 
In keeping with the Christian Brothers tradition, we will provide our young men with a value-centered education and a healthy setting where they will grow and become positive contributors to CM and the world around them. 
 
I would invite you to learn more about this great school and the impact that it has made on generations of men. Our website provides you with many ways to learn about our admissions process, faculty, staff and students, and the rich, supportive community that exists here. 
 
Sincerely, 
Dr. Peter F. Folan
