About Us
Our Students

BCCS fills its enrollment through an open, public lottery for all age-appropriate students in the city of Boston. Our students live in all of Boston's 13 neighborhoods, with about 60% residing in Dorchester. 

Life at Home:
46% of the student body qualifies for free or reduced price lunch.

Girls compose 52% of the student body and boys compose 48%. 

Special Needs:
23% of our students are on an Individualized Education Plan or a 504 Plan.

The student body is 47% White Non Hispanic, 28% African American, 15% Hispanic, and 4% Asian, Native American and Multi-Racial. As BCCS has developed a strong reputation across the city, we have been able to attract students from diverse backgrounds and from neighborhoods beyond South Boston, our original location.
