Have you always wanted a younger sibling? Or, do you love to work with small children and want to someday babysit or work in a preschool? If so, consider being a “Big Sib”! Big Sibs (short for siblings) is a fun club that meets once a week to read stories to the babies in the daycare. You’ll get to learn the responsibility necessary to work with small children and have fun doing so! If you are a good role model for others and want to spend time with kids much younger than you, then join Big Sibs!

Most of our students begin their experience at Boston Collegiate Charter School in the Lower School, grades five and six. For many students, BCCS is a very new kind of school. In addition to new structures and systems, there are extremely high academic and behavioral expectations with accompanying incentives and consequences, merits and demerits, uniforms, and lots of homework. Lower school teachers spend time orienting students to the new expectations of BCCS, helping them to stay organized and on top of their assignments, and showing them that learning and achieving can be fun!
The instructional program in the Lower School centers on a commitment to a rigorous college preparatory curriculum combined with additional time on learning and close, individualized instruction.
