High School Placement

We prepare our students to thrive in high school

In addition to preparing our students academically and socially for an excellent high school experience, we work with them to identify the best fit for them beyond Our Lady’s Academy.  We work with them to prepare for admissions and placement tests, to complete applications and personal essays and our staff provide references and recommendations.  Area high schools often seek out our graduates, and many of them visit our campus to provide information and answer questions from our students.  Our alumni go on to shine at many area high schools, whether they be private or public, single-sex or coed, Catholic or not.  Some of the schools that have recently accepted our students include:


Arlington Catholic High School

Malden Catholic

Austin Preparatory School

Minuteman Technical High School

Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart
