Founded in 1863, Boston College High School is a world-class, independent Jesuit, Catholic preparatory school for young men in grades 7–12. BC High offers students dynamic, urban learning experiences unique to Boston and unparalleled opportunities to explore the world through a vast network of international destinations and schools. BC High’s approach is rigorous, going beyond the academic to address the whole person: mind, body, and heart. They cultivate qualities that establish character and provide students with a holistic framework to wrestle with the many complexities of life. At BC High, future leaders begin to develop their potential and find their own unique voices.
At the core of their culture is the Jesuit tradition of promoting justice globally. They ask tough questions and assess the systems that elevate some and oppress others. The BC community works together toward a more ethical and inclusive world. Students learn to stand up boldly for what they believe in, including themselves, and become men who lead with integrity.
