Teaching Philosophy

At Malden Catholic, we know that young men and young women have the best chance of reaching their potential in a rigorous, college-preparatory academic environment that encourages them to express themselves freely while minimizing the social pressures of adolescence. We also believe that our students need healthy opportunities outside of the classroom to interact and work together to become better prepared for college and life beyond. Our unique codivisional model, marked by single-gender all-boys and all-girls academics during the school day and extracurricular opportunities for collaboration outside of class, offers our young men and women the opportunity to achieve to their fullest potential in all facets of their academic, creative, spiritual, physical, and social development.

Although the School for Boys and the School for Girls operate in separate wings of our school building, the two schools benefit equally from the assets that have distinguished Malden Catholic from other Boston-area schools: modernized Learning Commons spaces, a state-of-the-art science center, superior athletic facilities, a dedicated and academically distinguished faculty, and a broad array of service and faith-building opportunities. Most importantly, the two schools share in the spirit of "Plus Ultra" - Latin for "more beyond" - the spirit that defines what is uniquely exceptional about a Malden Catholic education.
