School Background & Profile:
In December of 2019, Bishop Robert J. McManus announced the merger of the two Worcester diocesan junior/senior high schools, St. Peter-Marian CCHS and Holy Name CCHS, in forming a newly constituted diocesan junior/senior high school. St. Peter-Marian CCHS, also a result of a merger of St. Peter High School (est. 1921) and Marian High School (est. 1963), was established in 1976 at the campus of Marian High School on Grove Street. A junior high was added in 1989. Holy Name CCHS, originally founded in 1942 on Illinois Street in Worcester at Holy Name of Jesus Parish, moved to the Granite Street campus in 1967 and added a junior high in 1997. After a careful consultative review, Bishop McManus announced in March of 2020 that the new school would be named in honor of the patron saint of the Diocese of Worcester, and that Saint Paul Diocesan Jr/Sr High School would be cited at the current Holy Name campus on Granite Street.

We prepare students to lead and serve as equals both in and beyond the classroom, readying them for college and career. We are an urban-based regional school that celebrates achievement and success in all its diversity. Of our 565 students, approximately 35% identify as non-white, 21% speak a language other than English at home, and 9% are international students studying abroad.
