St. Vincent Pallotti High School is the oldest coeducational, Catholic, secondary, college preparatory school in the Archdiocese of Washington. Founded in 1921 by the Pallottine Sisters, the school is located in historic Laurel, Maryland near the intersection of four Maryland counties: Anne Arundel, Howard, Montgomery, and Prince George's. We attract students from over 50 different schools in these Maryland counties and the District of Columbia.
Pallotti offers young men and women the best of both worlds. We are large enough to boast a wide-ranging curriculum, cutting edge technology, and a diverse selection of extracurricular activities. We are also small enough that each student is treated as an individual, possessing unique talents and abilities. We offer spiritually enriching retreats and service opportunities, and over 20 interscholastic sports teams. Pallotti is a place where young people can receive the nurturing they need and the freedom to spread their wings.
