Welcome from the President

Mission Grammar School President, Aliece Dutson

Welcome to Mission Grammar School

Beginning at just 3 months old, Mission Grammar Scholars are Living the Gospel, on the Road to college!  Founded in 1889, our school has been innovating and evolving in a tradition of individual excellence for over 130 years.  During this long history, we have deepened our Mission and developed programming to live it more fully each and every day.  We invite you to come visit and experience what we are talking about, Mission Grammar is truly a special place!

We are a diverse community rooted in the goals of equity, opportunity, and providing outstanding education.  We believe in the innate brilliance of each and every child and work to bring that brilliance out in all we do.  In our recent Capital Campaign, we have focused on renovating classroom spaces to expand enrollment and opportunity. We have constructed a state of the art STEM lab, beautiful new classrooms which are in inspiring spaces to learn, and a playground of our own.

Community is critical to the success of our school and at Mission Grammar we thrive with the support of Mission Church.  The Church is home to the Redemptorists order of Priests and Brothers and was originally established as a Mission rather than a Parish.  Shortly after, this Mission later became a Parish, our school was built. This very neighborhood of Boston is named for Mission Church.

With the goal that all graduates gain admission into a Catholic, independent, or exam school, scholars work closely on personal goals alongside their families, teachers and peers. Recent graduates have gone onto Cathedral High School, Boston Latin School, Boston Latin Academy, Milton Academy, Saint Joseph Prep, Cristo Rey Boston, Belmont Hill and Newton Country Day School.

Located in the Longwood Medical and Academic Area, Mission Grammar benefits from community partnerships.  Mission Grammar is a partner school of Emmanuel College. This relationship links scholars to many opportunities; academic, cultural, and athletic. Mission Grammar scholars form relationships with college volunteers in the capacity of enrichment classes and tutoring sessions.

Upon admission to OLPH Mission Grammar School, you will enter into a Faith-Based learning community committed to celebrating the gifts of your child. I look forward to meeting with you. Again, thank you and welcome to a school community dedicated to nothing less than Unity in Diversity and Excellence in Education, Since 1889.
