Admissions Welcome

    For over 461 years, Jesuit educators have been challenging students to grow academically, spiritually, and personally and to become leaders in their communities as “Men for Others.” BC High has been graduating young men of conscience and compassion who are marked by a genuine commitment to the service of others for 150 years, and that same direction and spirit are still very much alive today on Morrissey Boulevard.

    Our distinguished and rigorous academic program offers more advanced placement and honors level courses than any other school in Eastern Massachusetts, and our graduates attend many of the finest colleges and universities in the world. They will tell you, without hesitation, that BC High has prepared them to excel at this next stop in their education. Complementing the School’s commitment to intellectual excellence is the rich variety of cultural and athletic opportunities available in our extensive co-curricular program. There is something here for everyone!

    In keeping with the School's founding mission and its Jesuit ideals, BC High offers financial aid to qualifying families and has met an average of 70% of demonstrated need for 2013-2014, with awards averaging $8,200. Our hope is that this need-based financial aid will continue to open our doors to young men who otherwise might not be able to experience a BC High education.  

    If BC High sounds like the place where you would like to work and grow, your first step is to create an Eagle Admission Account, through which you will be able to sign up for a number of events and offerings. What better way to be introduced to BC High than to experience our “Eagle for a Day” shadow program, join us for a 7th or 9th grade Information Night, or attend one of the many Community Receptions which we offer! And, of course, you may always contact us at 617-474-5010 or by email at admissions@bchigh.edu.
    We look forward to hearing from you and wish you a happy, successful year.
    Ad majorem Dei Gloriam!

    The Grad at Grad is...
    Open to Growth:
    that is, he has matured as a person - emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially, religiously - to a level that reflects intentional responsibility for his growth; and he is beginning to reach out, seeking opportunities to stretch his mind, imagination, feelings, and religious consciousness.
