Students in graduation

Headmaster's Welcome

Welcome to our always evolving website. Whether you are visiting for the first time or return often for our latest news and developments we hope the multiple glimpses of our school motivate you to learn more. The portraits and stories of our students and faculty at work – in class and out – capture a school
humming with energy and focus. Our nearly 150 year tradition inspires our school community each day.

While our site provides a great deal of information and impressions, we are a school that offers more than strong academics and outstanding activities. All students learn about leadership and service through daily practice.

Above all, we are much more than the sum of all the images and texts you can find here, as we seek each day to stretch minds and hearts of all the young men in our care. We also know, as deeply as we know anything, that we are privileged to work with these young men because our alumni and friends make it possible through their generous gifts. Happily, more and more of these gifts can be made easily and promptly through our website. For all these gifts, that represent faith in us and investments in our community, we are grateful.

Fr. Edwin D. Leahy, O.S.B.’63
