A History of Marian

Marian High School was officially opened by Rev. Richard Cardinal Cushing, the Archbishop of the Boston, in 1956.  Under the leadership of the Sisters of St. Joseph, Marian grew in number and reputation, educating many who are now proudly part of our more than 6,000 alums.  Former students have moved on to assume roles as astronaut, business manager, educator, physician, professional athletes, TV producer, etc.  Over the years, many dedicated men and women have assumed the educational leadership of the school, ably supported by dedicated faculty and staff.  In 2004, through a change in governance within the Archdiocese of Boston, Marian High School became its own entity, Marian High School, Inc.  After the graduation of the Class of 2018, the school closed due to declining enrollment.
