Malden Catholic High School
Girls Division
Malden, MA

After more than 80 years as a leader in all-boys education, Malden Catholic High School welcomed girls as a co-divisional school. Following a co-divisional school model, Malden Catholic’s two single-gender divisions operate independently, but share its academic philosophy and dedication to fostering the spiritual, intellectual, creative, social and physical development of all students.

The Girls Division program occupies a separate wing within Malden Catholic’s 1970s school that formerly housed the Xaverian Brothers when they lived on campus. The facilities include Learning Commons that overlooks the central courtyard, in addition to classrooms, meeting rooms and offices. Our design creates 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.

Creating parity between the two divisions was a primary goal. The Girls Division includes its own Learning Commons and state-of-the-art classrooms that complement the high quality learning environments of Malden Catholic's Boys Division.
