Post-graduate planning is a crucial component of a student’s life at BDEA.
The Post-Graduate Planning team does everything from starting the conversation about post-high school graduation options with every BDEA student, to providing additional, inspirational counseling through the final trimesters, to supporting students interested in careers as well as in attending college.
In between enrollment and the final, Capstone trimester, the PGP team offers career readiness classes that incorporate habits of success, partners with organizations that connect our students to jobs (The Boston Private Industry Council); helps them think about college choices (College Advising Corp); and continues to support BDEA alumni long after their high school graduation.
