Volunteering

Boston Collegiate benefits from the support and commitment of the greater Boston community to achieve our simple yet ambitious mission: to prepare each student for college. We ask a lot of our families, students, and staff to create and sustain a high-performing public school. We are able to provide our students with additional academic support and enrichment opportunities because of the support of community members throughout greater Boston.
