The Academy provides an exceptional education for students with genuine intellectual curiosity, strong academic abilities, and a diversity of interests. A small, independent day school of 150 students, the Academy is located on the Boston University campus and offers highly motivated students in grades 9 12 an unparalleled preparation for the college experience. Engaging with dedicated teachers in a small and caring community, students first immerse themselves in a classically based core curriculum and then continue their intellectual interests by studying coursework at Boston University.
