From kindergarten to 8th grade, Bruce Springsteen attended school here (1954 to 1963). Later, the Boss would recollect being at odds with the structure of Catholic school, but having it lead to a "very active spiritual life." Traces of Irish-Catholic hymns can be heard in some of his work.

The Boss came back to the school to play a benefit acoustic show in the gymnasium on Nov. 8, 1996, and only Freehold residents were allowed to purchase tickets.
