About Matignon High School

Expect Excellence

Matignon High School, located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was established over seventy years ago and serves as an exceptional Archdiocesan-sponsored Catholic School. Matignon High School is a faith-filled, mission-driven and highly diverse community of nearly five hundred student and faculty learners.

While many schools speak proudly of their tradition of excellence, Matignon focuses on achieving excellence every day. At Matignon, the spirit of excellence permeates the very fiber of the school. It is through this spirit of excellence that our students come to believe in themselves, in each other, and in a bright future.

The extraordinary successes built through the Matignon spirit of excellence reach across our history and continue today. The stories are many and varied. Of particular note are the hundreds of alumni who have become leaders in business, finance, education, medicine, social services, technology, government, engineering, performing arts, and athletics. A pattern emerges as alumni share their personal stories of rather ordinary beginnings evolving into something extraordinary. Indeed, it is clear that the Matignon High School experience makes a lasting difference and changes people’s lives for the better within families, communities, and our Catholic Church.
