Lancers Have the All-Boys Advantage
Numerous studies have found that boys learn differently and mature at a different rate than girls. Attending school in an all-boys environment gives young men the following, critical advantages:
The Freedom to Explore
In an all-boy’s school, boys can be themselves; they are encouraged to follow their interests and talents wherever they might lead. At Malden Catholic, young men take part in the arts, speak out in class discussion and participate in community service projects without worrying about their image.
The Freedom to Focus
All-male education means freedom from distractions -- girls. Our students focus on their studies during the school day; social interactions with young ladies are after school hours.
The Freedom to Excel
Studies prove that boys who attend a single gender school perform better on standardized tests. Malden Catholic's typical standardized test scores are well above the local and state average, contributing to our outstanding college placement record.
The Freedom to Learn From Male Role Models
More than 75 percent of our faculty are men, and they also serve as club moderators, guidance counselors and coaches. These dedicated, caring role models positively impact our students, fostering strong interpersonal relationships, promoting a secure sense of self, and helping each young man to recognize his unique strengths and identity.
