On Wednesday, March 7, 2018, Malden Catholic celebrated the opening of its new academic wing that will host Malden Catholic School for Girls with a formal ribbon cutting ceremony and brunch.
The ceremony marked the completion of an extensive renovation project announced just eleven months ago by Headmaster Thomas J. Doherty III and Board Chairman Jim Donovan.
The newly-renovated facility at 99 Crystal Street will host the inaugural 9th grade class of Malden Catholic School for Girls beginning in September 2018.
The ribbon cutting was attended by representatives of the Xaverian Brothers, the office of U.S. Senator Edward J. Markey (MC ’64), the Archdiocese of Boston Catholic Schools Office, the Catholic Schools Foundation, the City of Malden, alumnae of the former Girls’ Catholic High School, the School Sisters of Notre Dame and several local Catholic parishes.
Malden Catholic was represented by members of its Administration and Board of Trustees, former administrators, benefactors and alumni, and several girls already enrolled in the inaugural class of the School for Girls as St. Francis Xavier Scholars.
The new 25,000 sq. ft. School for Girls wing was designed by Boston-based Miller Dyer Spears, Inc., constructed by Quincy-based J. Calnan & Associates, Inc., and landscaped by Stefano’s Landscaping of Saugus. Boston-based R.W. Sullivan Engineering supervised mechanical and electrical engineering, plumbing, and fire protection.
Members of each firm were on hand for the ribbon cutting and were recognized by Headmaster Doherty in his inaugural remarks that celebrated the completion of this monumental project in the history of Malden Catholic.
“We are very excited for the future here at Malden Catholic,” said Headmaster Doherty. “Where many other schools are struggling, we are continuing to grow. Where Catholic education in urban areas is declining, we are booming.
“We’ve planted the seeds for a very bright future, and this is due in large part to the efforts of all of those gathered here today.”
