St. Mary's High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school in Lynn, Massachusetts. It is located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston.

Background[edit]

St. Mary's High School was established in 1881 as Saint Mary's Boys High School.[2] A Girl's High School was added later, followed by coeducation. In 1989 the school began a junior high school starting with a 7th grade class only, with an 8th grade class added the following year. The junior high school added a 6th grade class in 2011 after Massachusetts moved to a middle school education model.

St. Mary's incorporated in 2006 as a private school, independent from the Archdiocese of Boston, and instituted a new governance structure with a head of school, principal, and twenty-member Board of Trustees, thus ending its period as a parochial school.

In addition, they went through the 2009/2010 season undefeated with one tie.

Miscellaneous[edit]

The former Girls High School building was demolished in 2005 to make way for the state-of-the-art William F. Connell Center, which provides a library, technology center, chapel, and classrooms.

Students are encouraged to participate in Christian service activities, such as Rachel's Challenge, Sant' Edigio, and assisting at My Brother's Table, a local food pantry.
