“For more than 150 years, Boston College High School has shaped leaders from every walk of life and across all fields and industries.”

Our dynamic model marries academic rigor to an environment that nurtures individual differences and fosters whole-person growth of the mind, body, and soul. We are focused on developing bold, self-aware young men, who possess a deep sense of responsibility that goes beyond themselves. They are 21st century global citizens, who are uniquely empowered to create success in a complex, challenging, and interconnected world.

Our work at BC High prepares young men to find their calling and answer it passionately. On our campus, in our community, and around the world our students, serve, lead, and strive to make a difference in the lives of others.

We live in a constantly changing world, but we pray these things are unchangeable in the lives of our students: their conviction and commitment to justice. Their conscience, formed and informed by compassion. And their courage to work for the greater glory of God.”

– President Grace Regan P’12
