This website is dedicated to the memory of our Alma Mater - Power Memorial Academy
Power Memorial was an all boys Catholic High School that was operated from 1931 until it closed in 1984.
We endeavor to help our alumni remember our school, each other and our teachers.
PMA was founded in 1931 when, at the request of the Archbishop of the New York Diocese, a new community of Irish Christian Brothers took over the five attached row houses on 124th Street that had previously been occupied by the Bothers other school, All Hallows. They named it Power Memorial Academy in memory of Monsignor Power who had originally invited the Irish Christian Brothers to this country and who had died in 1926.
By 1938 the schools student body had increased to such an extent that a new location was required. A building at 161 W 61st Street, which had previously housed the NY Nursery & Childs Hospital, was purchased as the new school site.
