TechBoston Academy’s essential belief is that by providing an environment that is both nurturing and challenging, every student can learn and develop into a responsible citizen. TechBoston Academy, a pilot high school within the Boston Public Schools, offers a college preparatory curriculum, which includes interdisciplinary project-based learning, where technology is the bridge that connects the students to their learning experiences.

How to get involved/application guidelines and procedures:
How can my son/daughter apply for a seat in the school? We welcome calls by parents and students regarding admission to TechBoston Academy. In addition, you can contact your local Parent Information Center. How will students be selected for TechBoston Academy, and how many will be selected? Students will be chosen randomly from the pool of eligible applicants. Before entering the lottery students and parents should agree to the extended day, extended year calendar. The only eligibility requirement will be that each student must be eligible for promotion to the 9th grade (by June 30) as specified by Boston Public Schools’ standards. There will be approximately 90 students per class, meaning there will eventually be 380 students total.
