Shine on the Field, Stage or Studio

Shine on the Field, Stage or Studio — It’s Up to You!

With over 100 clubs and co-curriculars, you’ll have myriad opportunities to engage your passions — whether it’s starring in a theater production, participating in a mock trial debate, or throwing the game’s final touchdown. Our students have started their very own unique clubs, which we welcome and encourage you to do, too.

By taking advantage of all the extras that BC High has to offer, you’ll build community, push one another outside of your comfort zones, and as a result grow, both in confidence and character.

At BC High, there’s a sea of opportunities to expand your horizons outside the four walls of the classroom.
Dive right in!



Spark Your Passion

Arrupe has a wide variety of co-curricular offerings that empower you to meet friends, explore new hobbies, and become active members in the community.

Many of the clubs and activities meet after school and are open for students to drop in occasionally, while other activities require a sustained commitment. In addition to our regular club offerings, you are welcome to start a new club of your own through a written proposal.

High School Co-Curriculars

Follow a Dream

Our high school co-curricular program provides so many opportunities to explore your interests, follow dreams, and develop strong friendships — all while learning effective leadership skills.

With over 60 clubs and co-curriculars, you have opportunities in every realm, from the creative to the technical; from the brainy to the physical, which all encourage ownership and responsibility for your own growth outside of the classroom. Should your personal passion not be represented in the current co-curriculars, you are encouraged to propose a new club of your own.

You’ll take full advantage of being in Boston by attending several conferences throughout the year. In March, you’ll help host dozens of schools from every New England state and New York at our own student-run conference. But to really grow your skills as a talented negotiator, you might go beyond Boston by traveling to conferences at Georgetown University and Stanford University.

Student photography is even used in the BC High magazine distributed to nearly 20,000 people twice a year.


The first Robotics Competition is tough, and your staging area – the pit – is loud. Your whole season has built up to this moment after countless long nights spent designing, building, wiring, and programming the robot. A bug that has haunted your robot all year has reared its head during the qualification period, and your team has a choice: risk rendering the robot useless in your upcoming matches... or wipe the slate clean and start programming from scratch.
