Malden Catholic High School
School for Girls
After more than 80 years as a leader in all-boys education, Malden Catholic High School is establishing a School for Girls to offer its rigorous college-preparatory curriculum to a broader student body. As a co-divisional school, Malden Catholic’s two single-gender schools will operate independently, but will share its academic philosophy and dedication to fostering the spiritual, intellectual, creative, social and physical development of all students.
The School for Girls program will occupy a separate wing within Malden Catholic’s 1970s school that formerly housed the Xaverian Brothers when they lived on campus. The facilities include a range of classrooms, meeting rooms and a Learning Commons that overlooks the central courtyard. Our design of the School for Girls seeks to create welcoming and stimulating environments that complement Malden Catholic’s familial atmosphere and focus on academic excellence.
To meet aggressive schedule goals for a September 2018 opening, the renovation was designed and implemented on a fast-track schedule. The scope of the renovation includes 24,500 sf with a minor addition. Construction was phased to minimize disruption to the ongoing school operations.
