At St. Malachy School, we have a history of high academic achievement. Many of our students qualify for academic scholarships. Some 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 various 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 ensuring our graduates are enrolled in college preparatory high school programs.

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

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


We go above and beyond to meet every child's needs. Through partnerships 

  • Classroom sets of Chromebooks, iPads, and a full computer lab keep our scholars researching, creating, and communicating using the latest ideas and applications.
  • Interactive whiteboards in every classroom allow our teachers to access the latest curricular resources.
  • Three different mentoring programs offer our students the opportunity to grow with the help of caring adults.
  • United Stand and Catholic Charities counseling programs care for our student's emotional and academic needs.
  • A variety of tutors and tutoring programs offer every student one-on-one assistance. Tutoring is available for every student in every class.
