Christopher Columbus High School

A Catholic School for Young Men in the Marist Tradition since 1958
About Us


60 Years of Educational Excellence

Christopher Columbus High School has always fostered three distinct traditions: the pursuit of academic excellence, the heritage of Catholic education, and the unique spirit and mission of the Marist Brothers.

Our school opened in 1958 with just two and a half buildings and an enrollment of approximately 150 students. The Marist Brothers assumed the direction of the school in 1959, under the leadership of Principal Br. Benedict.

Throughout the years the school expanded, adding new buildings, facilities and programs. Known for excellence in every field, and with an enrollment of 1,700 students and over 14,750 alumni, today Christopher Columbus High School is a model for Catholic schools all over the country.

Christopher Columbus High School is a private, Roman Catholic, college-preparatory high school, conducted by the Marist Brothers of the Schools. We aim to make Jesus Christ known and loved, as we prepare young men for higher education and for their continuous challenge of harmonizing faith, culture and life. We foster a family spirit among all who are committed to the success of the school and promote opportunities to work together as a community of learners.
