Cardinal Spellman High School is a Catholic co-ed college preparatory school founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph. We are situated on a pristine 42-acre campus in a residential section of Brockton. Spellman is a place with community, spirit, and vitality. With almost 500 students, we are large enough to offer diversity and small enough to call you by name. Our school is dedicated to providing excellence in Catholic education in a safe and supportive environment for our students. We ask our students to give their best in the classroom, on the field, on the stage, in the audience or stands, and out in their community.

Spellman offers a diverse, rigorous and technology supported curriculum taught by a passionate and highly qualified faculty and staff. Students will be challenged to become leaders and to reach their maximum potential by achieving excellence in academic and extracurricular pursuits. It is our goal to produce students who are prepared to attend the very best colleges and who are also well rounded, good, respectful and responsible citizens eager to be positive contributors to their community, Church and to our world
