Learn more about Holy Name School. We would love to hear from you.
With a diverse curriculum, pre-kindergarten through eighth grade students at Holy Name School get the challenges they need, through a variety of teaching techniques, to learn and grow. We combine both traditional and contemporary approaches to teaching to sharpen each student's critical thinking, creative thinking, and problem solving skills.
A new educational dimension to parish life began in the late 1950s with an appeal letter to parishioners from Pastor William H. Harrington announcing the ambitious goal of creating the Holy Name School. This goal was to be accomplished by offering memorial opportunities to subscribers, who through their generosity, would cover content costs ranging from teachers’ desks to individual classrooms. This initial effort and other creative fundraising by the entire parish community soon bore fruit, and the cornerstone of Holy Name School was blessed in 1959. Construction of the projected eight classroom structure was underway by September of that same year.
The school was designed by the prestigious, church-oriented, architectural firm of Maginnis, Walsh, and Kennedy of Boston, perhaps best known for the design of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Washington, D. C. The structure was built on the site of the original church on Read Street that was then being used as the parish hall and the extensive playground located adjacent to the site.
In a joyful golden anniversary school reunion held in 2010, many of our former students and staff returned to share memories and renew old friendships. Most notably, and pleasing to all, is the Parish Center addition blessed by Bishop Sean P. O’Malley back in 1998, which has served to better connect parishioners to their Catholic elementary school.
