Making it work for over 800 graduates

In the world of high school education, Boston Day and Evening Academy is truly extraordinary. An alternative public charter high school located in Roxbury, Massachusetts, BDEA was created to serve any Boston Public School student who is overage for high school, who has had trouble with attendance issues, has been held back in 8th grade, who feels they are not getting the attention in class that they need to succeed, or who has dropped out but is eager to come back to school to earn their diploma.

BDEA is a student-centered, competency-based school, and uses neither Carnegie units (A, B, C, D, F) nor traditional grade levels (9th, 10th, 11th, 12th) to measure success or progress. We are a family of teachers,support staff,students, and education, non-profit and community partners, all focused on one thing: learning. Join us in our classrooms, our garden, and in our continued work for equity in education.

Hear directly from students about their experience at BDEA in our VIDEO, and learn how BDEA has made a difference in thousands of lives.
