OUR MISSION

The mission of Boston Collegiate Charter School (BCCS) is simple yet ambitious: to prepare each student for college.

OUR VISION

All BCCS students will graduate empowered to choose their own directions, with options aligned with their passions and interests and with the critical thinking capability to choose wisely. They will be equipped not only to go to college, but to thrive there. They will have the skills and the leadership mindsets necessary to make an impact in their communities and beyond. To achieve this vision of our graduates, BCCS will be a leading school in academically rigorous, equitable, and inclusive educational practices in Boston. BCCS will create opportunities for each student to thrive and cultivate the unique talents that each student brings. BCCS will be a beacon of the twin pillars of scholarship and belonging, and thus a national model for what integrated education can look like at its best.
