Welcome to Boston Day and Evening Academy
"BDEA guides lost students to personal success." - James, Class of 2007, Mass College of Liberal Arts, Class of 2011
In the world of high school education, Boston Day and Evening Academy is truly extraordinary. An alternative public charter high school located in Roxbury, BDEA is open 10 hours a day in order 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 and progress. Look inside this site at the description of our school, starting with our Mission and see what you can learn in just this one visit. We are a family of teachers, support staff, parents, students, and community partners, all focused on one thing: learning. Join us in our garden, in our classrooms, and in our continued work for equity in education.
