Malden Catholic is community no matter if you are a student, teacher, parent, neighbor, alum, or friend. The all-boys environment is such a huge advantage for the students there. The boys have the option to explore many different things the school offers from varsity athletics to robotics team to drama club to Habitat for Humanity. The school also prepares the boys for a successful college career. Overall, very pleased with Malden Catholic and highly recommend sending your son to this institution.
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.
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.
