Welcome to Matignon High School, a co-educational college preparatory school proudly serving metropolitan Boston and the suburbs since 1947!

On a bright September morning in 1947, Sister Magdalena, a Sister of Saint Joseph, called classes to order and Matignon High School began its tradition of excellence, providing the students of metropolitan Boston and the surrounding communities a rigorous college preparatory education.

Since 1947 Matignon has proudly served the Greater Boston region as one of the Archdiocese’s premier co-educational Catholic schools. A school known for its academics in the classroom and athletic prowess in the Catholic Central League, Matignon has a rich heritage and proud history. Over the course of close to six decades a lot has changed, but the love of learning and the proud traditions of the school remain the same.

The academic program at Matignon High School is designed to prepare all of our students for college. Reflecting our commitment to intellectual greatness and our ongoing quest to motivate lifelong learners, Matignon High School is pleased to offer not only college preparatory courses to its students, but we also offer a number of Honors level and Advanced Placement courses. As a small school, Matignon High School’s athletic opportunities are available to ALL students interested in participating in a sport. With a variety of interesting and educational clubs, our extra-curricular program is unmatched. Perhaps our most noteworthy characteristic however is not necessarily found in the classroom or on the playing field, but instead can be found in our service to the neighborhood and in our community service programs throughout the region, making Matignon High School a unique, strong and vibrant learning community.

Sincerely, Kara Skilton
