Info For Parents and Fans

Boston College High School Athletics, with its long and storied tradition of success, operates with the commitment to educate our student-athletes, and stress the importance of our values: Hard work, Humility, Respect, and Teamwork.

Our coaching staff consists of dedicated men and women who serve as outstanding role models for our student-athletes. These coaches understand that besides playing to win, their role as coach includes character formation and positive sportsmanship. The athletic philosophy at BC High is no different from our academic philosophy – the playing fields are an extension of the classroom.

The student-athletes at the school understand they represent, not just themselves, but the entire BC High community when they wear the maroon and gold uniform. How they conduct themselves on and off the field is important to their overall well-being and attitude.

As a BC High alumnus, I am proud of what I see on a daily basis in the athletic program. The coaches and athletes flourish in a positive environment at BC High, constantly looking at ways to better themselves as athletes and people. These high expectations are what make BC High one of the most respected athletic programs in the state. I am proud of that fact, and will continue to make sure the tradition continues.
