Catholic Schools Begin New Academic Year Amidst Pandemic

Thousands of Catholic primary and secondary schools opened their doors last month for a new school year with various safety precautions in place.

Thomas Carroll, superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of Boston, coordinated with principals after Governor Charlie Baker said schools could reopen in-person in August.

“We’re open for in-person classroom instruction, and we’re hoping that lasts as long as possible, because there’s no substitute for a teacher and a classroom of kids all in the same place learning together,” Carroll told The Boston Pilot. “Our approach is, we want to be there for the families.”
