Student Spotlight: Matthew Caveney (Class of 2016)

Matthew Caveney ('16) is pictured here with his sister, Miriam ('16), sporting his medals from  Division II States.


Mount Royal Academy’s mission is centered on fostering an environment in which each student can recognize his true dignity and excel in all facets of life. Senior Matthew Caveney exemplifies this ethic.

As president of the Student Government and a member of the National Honors Society, his leadership is well established. His efforts led to improved social experiences for the student body. Matt oversaw a field trip to a Red Sox game last year. He recently coordinated a collaborative effort between Student Government and NHS to host a semi-formal dance at the school.

Matt’s teachers attest to his meticulous approach to learning and his desire to help others inside and outside of the classroom. Headmaster Derek Tremblay notes, “Even though he is soft-spoken, Matt is keenly aware of what it takes to be a virtuous man. Matt is also very modest and confident, not flamboyant, and always eager to help others.”

Last summer, Matt participated in the esteemed Great Books Program at Thomas Aquinas College in California. His thirst for the truth, and exceptional rhetorical skills were made manifest at the program. Winning is not his goal, per se, but rather to express the truth. He is adept at viewing an issue or idea from all sides.




As an athlete Matt and his sister, Miriam, represent MRA in NHIAA Division II Swimming. At the 2016 NHIAA State Championship Meet Matt placed 3rd in the Boys 100 Yard Butterfly and 5th in the 50 Yard Freestyle.

He is currently leading the largest senior class ever to graduate Mount Royal Academy. There is little doubt that his witness will be an inspiration for the future. He intends to enroll at Thomas Aquinas College in the fall of 2017.
