Boston College High School Reviews

Currently I am a senior in at BC High. BC High is everything I expected and wanted it to be. Wonderful teachers, a both rigorous and top-notch education, well-rounded co-curriculars, and a loving, committed community. All that being said do not let my opinion fool you, BC High is no joke. The academics here are rigorous with a 2-3 hour a night workload beginning in Freshman year. Teachers love to pile on work, so time management is key. The rewards, however, are well worth "the grind" (as we call it). Not only have I been accepted to top notch colleges thus far in my senior year (namely Boston College and Providence Honors College), but as I exit BC High I know that I will have a band of brothers by my side throughout the rest of my life. The community and fidelity developed by senior year is unmatched, as represented by BC High's strong alumni network. Go Eags!

Boston College High School has helped raise me to be a young man of faith and compassion. Since enrolling in the Arrupe program in seventh grade, my life have been shaped by the Jesuit values this school so graciously upholds. The classwork is challenging, but manageable. I believe it has done a wonderful job preparing me for college and beyond, but BC High is much more then a college prep school. They often use the phrase "We're trying to get you into Heaven, not Harvard". They do a good job at both! I would highly recommend this school.

BCHigh was not your average highschool, and it has the potential to be one of the most influential learning centers in the history of Boston if it can avoid the issues that plague so many other private institutions. Their (the administration's) rapacity quickly outpaces any good deeds that they attempt. The administration is the cause of this, taking the school's tenants of Men for Others and making it into a mockery. Reduced to a bumper sticker slogan. If those running the organization are able to effectively get back in touch with those who actually work and exist within its' confines, then I believe the school may reach the level that it deserves to be on.
