About Saint Paul Diocesan Jr/Sr High School
In December of 2019, Bishop Robert J. McManus announced the merger of the two Worcester diocesan junior/senior high schools, St. Peter-Marian CCHS and Holy Name CCHS, in forming a newly constituted diocesan junior/senior high school. After a careful consultative review, Bishop McManus announced in March of 2020 that the new school would be named in honor of the patron saint of the Diocese of Worcester, and that Saint Paul Diocesan Jr/Sr High School would be cited at the former Holy Name campus on Granite Street.
Animated by the example of our patron saint and namesake, we are a mission-minded community of learners. As a Catholic, college preparatory, co-educational school, we seek to form young men and women of conscience who will be active participants in the life of the Church and society. We prepare students to lead and serve as equals both in and beyond the classroom, readying them for college and career.
Of our students, approximately 35% identify as non-white, 21% speak a language other than English at home, and 5% are international students studying abroad. For our inaugural graduating Class of 2021, 79% of students report having been accepted by their first-choi...ce college/university. Our emphasis on academic excellence is witnessed in the professional educators who shape and support our students. More than 90% of our teachers hold an advanced degree, and the average tenure in education of a Saint Paul teacher is 14 years. This professional experience is expansive and allows for Saint Paul to offer a diverse and enriching curriculum for grades 7 – 12.
