BCCS was founded in 1998 with a simple yet ambitious mission: to prepare each student for college. We have grown from 120 students in grades 5 through 7 to 700 students in grades 5 through 12.

  • 100% of BCCS’s graduating classes have been accepted to college. The majority of our students will be the first in their families to earn college degrees.
  • In 2017, 100% of BCCS students scored Advanced or Proficient on the 10th grade ELA MCAS exam, and 97% of BCCS students scored Advanced or Proficient on the 10th grade Math MCAS. Additionally, 100% of BCCS students scored Advanced or Proficient on the 9th grade Physics MCAS exam.
  • The school accepts students by random public lottery.

  • believe in having the highest expectations for all students and not making excuses for them, the school, or staff;
  • believe that students, families, teachers, and school leaders should be held strictly accountable for their work;
  • believe in building a positive school culture where respect, enthusiasm, effort, achievement, perseverance, community, and hard work are valued; and
  • believe that for every problem, there is a solution, and that if we can’t find the answer immediately, we simply work longer, harder, and smarter.

  • setting up and holding regular meetings with content area teachers to track progress of students with disabilities, assist with modifications and accommodations, and review lesson plans;
  • serving as an Advisor to students or in another commensurate role;
  • writing complete IEPs within the time allotted for compliance;
  • participating in or chairing IEP team meetings and supporting the documentation process before and after those meetings;
  • providing regular support and previewing to students during advisory;
  • providing substitute coverage one period per quarter;
