Teaching. Inspiring. Connecting.

Teaching here requires a little more. Every member of our staff has an advanced academic pedigree and a sophisticated understanding of teaching in today’s world. 90% of our faculty have earned advanced degrees, including several doctorates.

But teaching here requires even more than that. It requires a specific understanding of how to teach boys during the most important years of their development. It requires a passion that inspires, and a commitment that extends well beyond the classroom. Our philosophy of relational learning is centered around the connection between teacher and student. So teachers here matter more. And we’re blessed to have a faculty we believe is the best in Greater Boston.

More importantly, our students agree.


Faculty Spotlights

“Catholic Memorial School is a warm and friendly community strengthened by its tradition, but laser-focused on meeting the needs of today’s students and families. In our academic setting, I love that students and faculty challenge each other in our collective pursuit of excellence.”

Mr. Vincent Bradley

Chair of the History and Social Studies Department
An advocate of experiential learning, Mr. Vincent Bradley, Chair of the History and Social Studies Department, has fostered relationships with historical and cultural institutions in Boston. Mr. Bradley led an independent study team of eight seniors that collaborated with officials at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the US Senate in Boston and co-wrote curriculum centered on American mobilization for World War I. CM was the first school in the country to successfully collaborate with the EMK Institute to create a Senate Immersion Module.

Active in the Advanced Placement community, Mr. Bradley has served multiple times as an AP US History Reader for the national exam. Additionally, Mr. Bradley has been a featured speaker on AP curriculum and pedagogy at the College Board’s AP National Conference in Orlando (2006); Washington, DC (2010 and 2017); and Austin, Texas (2015). Through Mr. Bradley’s efforts, Catholic Memorial School regularly hosts nationally-renowned historians on campus.



“Students at CM appreciate knowing that I am more than just a teacher. In class, I allow for occasional moments of conversation about life. This way they have a model of another adult doing his best to be a husband, father, coach, and man of faith, and I learn from them about what it is like to be a teenager in these times of rapid change.”

Mr. Gabe Verdaguer

World Languages Department Chair
Mr. Verdaguer was born in Patagonia, Argentina and moved to the United States when he was 9 years old. He appreciates and embraces many aspects of American culture and at the same time maintains the customs, values, and traditions of his native country. He teaches Spanish II, Spanish III, and Spanish III Honors. He coordinates a language and cultural immersion student exchange program with Colegio Mulhacén, an all-boys Catholic school in Granada, Spain.

In addition to teaching, Mr. Verdaguer coaches the middle school soccer team and the outdoor track and field team. He serves as moderator of the Knights of the Round Table, the school’s multicultural club.
