Boston College High School is a Jesuit, Catholic college preparatory school.
We strive to challenge our students to become young men of integrity, educated in faith and for justice, committed to academic excellence and service to others. As a Jesuit, Catholic school, we strive to reflect the diversity of our church and community.
Our mission since 1863 has been to form leaders of competence, conscience and compassion who seek to do all things ad majorem Dei gloriam – for the greater glory of God.
At Boston College High School, we follow the Jesuit ideal of living compassionately in service of others. Here, you’ll ask tough questions in class, engage in meaningful service projects within your local community and in the far-flung corners of the world, and begin to integrate the quest for justice into all you do. You’ll question the systems that elevate some people while oppressing others, and you will work within a community of fellow justice-seekers toward a more ethical and inclusive world.
Throughout all this, you’ll find yourself slowly—or maybe not-so-slowly—looking at the world differently. By graduation, seeking justice will be intrinsic to your way of being.
