Welcome from Head of School, Dr. John F. Dolan

Dear St. Mary’s Community,

St. Mary’s is on the move! So much has happened since you were here last.

Our new Gateway/STEM building is now complete and operational. The school now has over 30,000 square feet of new classroom space with state-of-the-art labs that will enhance STEM experiences and prepare our students for the next level.

The Mosakowski Garden construction projects (Grotto, St. Patrick’s Gate, Cardinal Sean Sanctuary, Stations of the Cross, etc.) are well underway. You have to see this beautiful space to believe it! Our students love it.

This past year St. Mary's was recognized by Cardinal Sean and Governor Baker for the school's operational excellence during the COVID era. We operated for 290 straight days (weekends included) as an in-person school, with a full slate of athletics and student activities! We did not lose a single day due to COVID.

Others too are recognizing what is happening at St. Mary’s. Enrollment this fall is over 650 students on our Tremont campus. Sacred Heart is expecting an opening enrollment of 240 – one of the best enrollment numbers in the last 5 years. Record enrollment and the fastest growing Catholic school in the diocese.

And, most importantly, our board of trustees just approved our strategic plan, Ascend 2026. Please visit our Ascend 2026 page for details about our St. Mary's vision for the future. We are committed to being a Catholic, coeducational, diverse and STEM focused school.

St. Mary’s is indeed ascending to new heights. Our growth is the result of the dedicated leadership of our board of trustees, our Pastor, parents, alumni, faculty, and staff. I hope you will join us!

Forward. Always forward,

Dr. John F. Dolan
Head of School
