Archbishop Curley High School opened its doors in September 1961 to a pioneer freshman class of 420. It was formally dedicated on April 17, 1962, by Lawrence Cardinal Shehan, the twelfth archbishop. Since its first graduating class in 1965 over 8000 graduates have received their diplomas.
The main three-story building still contains classrooms, science labs, administrative and guidance offices, while the attached wings have been modified over the years to accommodate new purposes. The chapel was renewed after the liturgical changes of Vatican II. The friary, the residence of the Franciscan Friars, was moved to one part of the original building, while the remainder became advancement offices, meeting space and the Library/Digital Media Center. The renovated auditorium was incorporated into the Holthaus Center for the Arts, new construction in 2010. The Student Dining Room and Fr. Julian Gymnasium continue as designed, while the final original wing of the school, first classrooms and then the library, now houses a fitness center and wrestling room.
The extensive grounds provide for ample parking and athletic facilities. The Curley Bowl features a synthetic turf field for football, soccer and lacrosse surrounded by a track. Other facilities include a baseball diamond, tennis courts, additional soccer field, and practice fields.
