Welcome to Cardinal Spellman

Welcome to Cardinal Spellman,

Located in Historic Brockton, Massachusetts, Cardinal Spellman High School has been serving the South Shore of Boston since 1958. Today’s Cardinal Spellman is an independent Catholic College Preparatory, Co-Educational grade 9-12 High School respected throughout New England as unique and dynamic.

Since our founding by the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1958, Spellman has represented the best in Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Boston. In 2004, Spellman began operating  as an independent school under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston and led by a lay Board of Trustees. Today’s Spellman serves over 700 students who come from 42 different cities and towns surrounding Brockton. This allows for an exceptionally diverse student body, socioeconomically, racially and religiously, though the great majority of the student body is Roman Catholic.
Cardinal Spellman has had an amazing decade as an independent school. Already superior academics have been strengthened.   A religious fervor unique to Spellman permeates the school and touches the hearts of students and staff alike.  I hear on a regular basis, “If you want to know about Spellman just attend one of their masses.”  They are indeed celebrations of our Catholic Liturgy led by our spectacular choir.

In the last decade our extracurricular successes abound with over 60 Catholic Central League Championships and numerous State Championships in athletics. Cardinal Spellman High School is proud of our many award winners. Our dramatic and musical productions have received rave reviews.  The introduction of our iPad initiative, which gives every student and faculty member a state of the art device has eliminated the need for text books and has put our students on the cutting edge of 21st Century learning. Our motto which tells our students “Go Forth and Serve” puts what we know as “The Spellman Way” into practice.
As you visit our website,
 I hope you take away the sense of spirit and the enthusiasm that is Spellman. "Sequere Deum,"our Latin motto, sums up our quest by simply telling us to “Follow God.”

For Spellman, I am
