Teachers are great. Don't send your son here for the athletics. Athletes are chosen based on who you know. They say they don't recruit for hockey but don't be na ve. Make sure you look closely at the whole school it is not the right fit for everybody. Tuition goes up 5% every year and financial aid is hard to get. Currently over $14,000. There are better choices for your money. Athletic fields surrounding the school, except for the stadium are owned by the City of Malden. Be careful.

MC turns boys into leaders. The academics are top notch and the school's sport and activities teach values. A terrific choice.

My son attended MC from 2000-2004. I can honestly state that he and I always felt that every teacher he had truly cared and wanted him to succeed. He never 'fell through the cracks'. My son was a hard worker who also wanted to succeed and never was turned away by any teacher when he wanted extra help, at any time. I would recommend this school and give it the highest praise.

I had heard that Malden Catholic was a 'city oasis.' It is true! Malden Catholic is not a 'pretty boy' school. They take young men from all different backgrounds and educate them in all areas of not just academics, but life. It is obvious that the school has stayed true to its roots...they educate the rich the poor and those of us in between. It has been a pleasure watching Malden Catholic help develop my sons. The only negative thing I would have to say is that they don't plan on opening an all-girls school as well for my daughters! Don't let the reasonable price fool you in comparison to some other high-priced options, there is no better education than at Malden Catholic.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
