Boston Preparatory Charter Public School
About the Organization:
Boston Preparatory Charter Public School (Boston Prep) is a free, public school, offering a rigorous curriculum to approximately 415 students from the most underserved neighborhoods of Boston. We operate as an integrated middle school, high school, and alumni support model. At the root of our programming is a belief that all students can succeed in college.
Mission: Boston Preparatory Charter Public School prepares students to succeed in a four-year college and embody, in thought and action, lifelong ethical growth. An environment structured around scholarship and personal growth cultivates students' virtues of courage, compassion, integrity, perseverance, and respect.
To achieve our ambitious goals, our approach includes six essentials that we believe leads to our success: we hold high expectation for students, we foster ethical growth, we have an invested, passionate student culture, we have an exceptional adult team, we offer a range of supports, and we ensure college persistence. Currently, 85% of our graduates are persisting in college, 100% of our students have been accepted to four-year colleges, and 99% of our alumni have matriculated to college the semester after graduating from Boston Prep.
We believe that exceptional student gains are the direct result of excellent teaching and programming and acknowledge the importance of students’ college readiness skills in achieving our mission. We are a mission-driven group of adults committed to refining and improving our practice such that our students can chart the life course they aspire to.
