Getting to BC High

Transportation is an important topic for many families when considering schools and BC High understands the importance of finding transportation options that make sense for you and your family. We are conveniently located close to an array of public transportation options, and offer on-campus parking for our visitors and community members. 
Typically, our students hail from more than 120 communities in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. With our doors opening at 6 a.m. on school days, we allow for flexibility in your arrival. If you enroll at BC High, you will be granted access to our online portal which allows you to search other enrolled students by town to help navigate transportation options.

It is through a students’ commute to school each morning that he learns essential skills as he ventures onto the train, takes a car ride or relies on bus service. Having this experience contributes to character formation, as the ideals we teach come to life.


Public Transportation

Each school day, nearly 1,200 BC High students commute to school by public transportation. Located on the MBTA Red Line, the JFK/UMass stop is only a five-minute walk from our campus, and an above-road pedestrian bridge allows for safe passage to school grounds.
