Most of its students live in Annapolis, Crownsville, Arnold, Pasadena, Severna Park, Crofton, Millersville, Glen Burnie, or Davidsonville in Anne Arundel County. Some also travel from southern Baltimore County, east Prince George's County and parts of Howard County. Spalding has numerous clubs for student involvement and/or academic competition, including Academic Bowl, Mock Trial, Strategic Gaming, HOPE (Help Our Planet Earth) and a NAIMUN award-winning Model United Nations team. It also has many competitive sports teams, such as rugby, soccer, basketball, softball, american football, ice hockey, baseball, lacrosse and cross country. These athletic teams compete in the MIAA and the IAAM Conferences. The school sponsors a highly competitive music program, in which students participate in interstate competitions each year. Archbishop Spalding's mascot is the Cavalier.


Archbishop Spalding was established in 1963 by as an all-girls high school called Holy Trinity High School. When the school moved to its present location in 1966, it was renamed Martin Spalding High School in honor of the seventh archbishop of Baltimore. Its name was changed to Archbishop Spalding High School in 1986. The school has been coeducational since 1973.[2]

In May 2003, the school acquired the adjacent 22-acre (89,000 m2) Upton Farm property,[3] enlarging the school's campus to 52-acre (210,000 m2). The addition of a new arts and technology wing was completed in September 2009.


The school's facilities include 50 academic classrooms and four science laboratories. Its library maintains a collection of approximately 14,000 books and 24 desktop computers for student research. An entire wing of the school is networked for wireless computing. The school also has an IMAC laboratory, two personal computer laboratories and a Project Lead the Way Engineering program. All classrooms have access to video and computer projection equipment for visual presentations. The auditorium, with 1,200 seats, provides a location for school wide assemblies, as well as theatre and music productions. A new auditorium was built in 2017, allowing for more space. A chapel is available for use by students, parents and faculty.[4]

The school has seven athletic fields. Its athletic stadium has an all-weather turf field, eight-lane track, seating for 2,000 and a video scoreboard. The main gymnasium seats 1,100 and a secondary gymnasium seats 500.[4]

An outdoor area known as the Senior Garden is traditionally reserved for use by senior students during their lunch breaks.[4]

It plays in either the "A" or "B" divisions of these leagues.[citation needed]
