Trinity Catholic High School was a Roman Catholic high school in Newton, Massachusetts. It was located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston. The school was a co-educational and college preparatory school founded in 1894. The school shut down in 2012, at which point the building that housed its functions was taken over by Cambridge Education Group and established as CATS Academy, a private non-religious school, catering mostly to international students.

In all pursuits, we challenge our students to become women and men of intellect and integrity who will witness the traditional Christian virtues of faith, hope and love and build a better tomorrow.
