The Catholic Memorial Academic Resource Center, or CMARC, is one of Catholic Memorial School’s newest resources for students. CMARC is a space for student learning in all its forms; whether checking out a novel for independent reading, looking for primary resources for a history paper, attending a workshop on stress management, or working collaboratively to complete math homework, students come to CMARC to achieve academic success.
During the school day, CMARC continues to fulfill the school’s need for a quiet study space. It offers print resources from traditional encyclopedias to weekly magazines to contemporary novels. In addition, CMARC provides numerous online resources, including databases focused on biblical studies, author biographies, and Massachusetts newspapers. Faculty members frequently bring classes to CMARC to give students training and assistance with research using these databases.
After school, CMARC becomes a place for collaborative learning. Students, faculty members, and tutors from nearby Boston College join together to grow and learn.
