High school Preparation

At St. Malachy School we have a history of high academic achievement. Many of our students qualify for academic scholarships. Some of the Catholic high schools our children attend include Christ the King, De La Salle, Loyola Academy, Fenwick, Holy Trinity, St. Ignatius, and Notre Dame as well as a variety of college preparatory public and charter schools. Our statistics show that St. Malachy graduates who finish at these college preparatory high schools are continuing on to college. Therefore, a high priority is placed on assuring that our graduates are enrolled in college preparatory high school programs.

Strong Christian Values

We are committed to developing the minds and hearts of our students.

  • Through daily religion classes and monthly masses, students are able to learn about Catholic values. Additional religious education classes are also offered for those who are interested.
  • Our school-year theme gives students the opportunity to practice those values. This year we are "respectronauts", learning to respect our selves, our peers, our God, and our history. 
  • The philosophy or restorative justice drives our approach to student behavior. We know that kids will make mistakes so we commit to giving them opportunities to fix the mistake and repair their relationships.
