BC High is teaching my son to be a future leader, not just in the world of academics but in the real world.

It's a really big school and it made really uneasy at first but after awhile I got used to its size and got to know the school more.

My experience at BC High was a great one. I learned so much about myself and discovered new hobbies that I probably would never have discovered if I went somewhere else. For instance, my love for musicals and theater was discovered here. Also, the fact that Boston College High School is a Jesuit school makes this school unique. Because of it's Jesuit identity, BC High sponsored retreats such as Kairos and Discovery where students went to learn more about being men for others and learn more about themselves. BC High is all about producing students who have good morals to live by and are intellectually competent. Considering this, I would definitely choose this high school again if I had to do it all over.
