Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., said he made the decisions “with a heavy heart” and apologised for telling families via video message due to the pandemic’s social isolation. “Catholic schools are not only about the houses,” he said, “but also about a culture that advances the Church’s mission” and looks to the future. “We will continue to provide high quality Christ-centered education for all of our students by consolidating our resources and bringing students together in these schools,” the bishop said.
Bishop Connolly High School in Fall River will merge operations with Coyle and Cassidy High School in Taunton, with free transportation given to the 100 high school students from the Taunton district. Students from Coyle and Cassidy Middle Schools can move to Taunton’s Our Lady of Lourdes School. Students attending St. Margaret Primary School would have the option of attending one of three Catholic schools: St. Pius X in South Yarmouth, St. Joseph School in Fairhaven, or St. Francis Xavier in Acushnet.
“While we deeply regret having to close all of our Catholic schools,” said Superintendent Stephen A. Perla, “our ultimate aim is to improve all remaining schools to ensure Catholic education is available for many years to come.”

“Argosy has given me the opportunity to learn more about the world than I could have imagined. I’ve been able to take courses at Argosy that I never imagined I’d be able to take in high school. Because of Argosy, I am able to proudly display these five pins, which represent the college credits I have earned by taking classes through Argosy.”
Since the class size is smaller, the teachers are able to concentrate more on the needs and desires of the students. When a scholar is having difficulty, the Argosy team does all they can to help them.
My daughter has done exceptionally well at Argosy. Her reading and math grades well exceeded the MA’s requirements. I realized we had to make a change when she was refused admission to the GATE program due to a lack of space. Argosy keeps their scholars accountable for improving their readiness and appreciation for real life. It is simple and encouraged to communicate with teachers. Argosy recognizes that college is a requirement for professional success and works hard to train students for it. They also have the option of earning college credits. This is a school that I would really suggest to everyone.

B.M.C. Durfee High School is the city’s only public high school. In 1886, the school was founded to replace an older high school. Mrs. Mary B. Young gave the original grand school building in memory of her late son, Bradford Matthew Chaloner Durfee, whose name is also on a Yale University dormitory. The new school building was completed in 1978, and a replica of the Durfee Chimes, the original school’s red-capped bell tower, is set to be built on the grounds.
The Hilltoppers, often shortened to Toppers, are Durfee’s teams, who wear black and red (in honor of the old school’s black roof and red observatory dome and tower spire). The old school’s perch on top of the hill north of the Quequechan River inspired the nickname. The school is a member of the Big Three Conference, which includes Brockton High School and New Bedford High School, its longtime natural competitor.
