Our
History

Building on a strong foundation of excellence, Pope Francis Preparatory School in Springfield, MA offers its students the best of what its legacy schools, Cathedral High School and Holyoke Catholic High School, had to offer.

Pope Francis was established by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield through the merger of Cathedral and Holyoke Catholic in 2016. The reimagined regional Catholic high school provides a beautiful, safe environment for students to learn with passion, lead with heart, and achieve in a world yet to be imagined!
