Free meals will continue to be available for all students for the entire 2022-2023 School Year. Please encourage your student or students to pick up lunch and breakfast daily at no charge. In addition to taking advantage of free school meals this year, we also encourage families to apply for SNAP benefits. SNAP provides monthly cash benefits (on an EBT card) to purchase groceries for eligible families. To apply for SNAP, visit or call the Project Bread FoodSource Hotline at 1-800-645-8333. If you are unsure whether your family is eligible, the FoodSource Hotline can assist you with eligibility questions. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Ms. Misci at or 617-265-1172 ext. 7700.
Here you will find a recent memo from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education regarding the use of the nondiscrimination statement on public communications.

Safety Training

In spring 2018, several members of the Boston Collegiate team were trained in a comprehensive safety response protocol called ALICE (  Each August, we require our entire staff to participate in ALICE training prior to the start of the school year.

Previously, staff training on what to do in the event of a dangerous person being in the building incorporated a protocol called “Run, Hide, Fight” per direction from the Boston Police Department.  ALICE takes this protocol one step further, providing clarity and direction about exactly what to do in the event of an emergency. Boston Collegiate staff feel more empowered than ever to be the best protectors possible for the children who attend our school.

Rally Points for Student Pick-up

In case of an emergency in which we need to take Boston Collegiate students away from the building, please make note of our rally points at which you can meet us to pick up your children

  • For our Lower School (Sydney Street) campus, we convene at Ryan Playground on the corner or Harborview Street and Dorchester Avenue
  • For our Upper School (Mayhew Street) campus, we convene in the parking lot of St. Teresa’s Church on Roseclair Street

While our day-to-day work is teaching and learning in preparation for college, please know that your children’s safety is our highest priority.  We take this matter seriously and personally.  If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at any time.

If you have a recommendation for an improvement to school safety or a recommendation for our Safety Information page, please email Amanda Kay Loring, Chief Operating Officer, at

Here is our dress code policy for the 2021-2022 school year.

Employment Permits for students ages 14 – 17 can be obtained in the Mayhew Welcome Office from Ms. Montesano once the student has secured the job. The employer will provide and sign an Employment Permit Application and give it to the student. The student then signs it along with a Parent/Guardian. Students ages 14 and 15 also require a Physician’s signature. Once all the signatures are obtained, the student may bring the completed application to Ms. Montesano to receive their Employment Permit. If the employer doesn’t have the Employment Permit Application on hand, you may also receive a blank one from the Main Office or you can print it yourself,  but keep in mind, this means the student will have to go back to the Employer with the blank application so they can sign it, then bring it back to the school completed.
