To Parents

May 18, 2020
Dear Boston College High Families:

While the last several months have been challenging, we have taken solace and inspiration from the many ways our community has come together to support one another. Students and faculty have developed innovative ways to ensure continuity in the educational excellence for which Boston College High School is renowned, while also supporting the social emotional needs of our community. Though the summer recess may be approaching, we are simultaneously working diligently with a focus on the Fall.

While we’re looking forward to brighter days ahead, we also know some families may be impacted by COVID-19 in a variety of ways – from job loss or general changes in financial situations to physical health and illness that may have significantly impacted income.

When you made the decision to send your son to BC High, they joined a caring and committed community. BC High parents and alumni are concerned about current students and their families and are joining together to raise funds in the One Community: One Mission spring campaign to support current BC High families impacted by COVID-19. If a parent has lost their job or saw their income reduced materially because of COVID-19, and/or if your family’s financial situation has changed because of a family member’s illness from COVID-19, please reach out to us to explore how BC High can assist your family with the Fall tuition.

You may have recently received your son’s tuition invoice for Fall 2020. And while it may seem a cliché at this point, we are truly all in this together. If your family has been impacted, we’re here to support and assist in any way we can.

Please reach out to us by June 12, 2020, so that we can ensure all the families requesting emergency aid because of COVID-19 are considered and available emergency aid can be disbursed to these families. Charlie Drane, Vice President of Enrollment Management is the main contact person if you have questions or would like to discuss any changes in your family’s situation. Charlie can be reached at [email protected]

Sincerely,

Michael J. Hoyle
Senior Vice President Administration, Finance and Strategic Planning

  • Presentation about Supporting Teens During "Lockdown"

    Families are invited to listen to an hourlong New York Times presentation with Lisa Damour, psychologist and NYT columnist. Here is a description: “Managing anxiety, stress, and boredom while sheltering in place is a challenge for us all. Add the all-too-common condition of ‘being a teenager’ into the mix, and it’s a potent recipe for trouble. Join us, as we discuss strategies for helping our young people cope.” The presentation ran last week but was recorded and can be accessed here
