The St. Philip Neri School opened in September, 1946 in Boston and a second branch opened in Haverhill, MA in 1949. The school was opened as a school for delayed vocations to the priesthood after World War II. Its purpose was to teach Latin so the students could go on to seminaries, which required a foundation of Latin for acceptance. The Haverhill, MA school closed in 1964 and the Boston, MA school closed in 1969. The School closed due to a dwindling number of students because United States seminaries in the mid-1960s were no longer requiring knowledge of Latin for admission as the liturgy was being conducted in English.

The collection consists of yearbooks, deeds & correspondence pertaining to the Haverhill, MA property, course catalogs, correspondence, and a written history of the school. The materials date from the 1940s to the 1960s.
