(Boston, Mass.) — Boston University Academy will celebrate its 10th year anniversary on Friday, October 10 at 4 p.m. The Academy, which Boston Magazine has called, “the private high school many admissions deans consider to have the most impressive intellectual offerings in Greater Boston,” has in just a decade become a leader in secondary education.
Chancellor John Silber and Headmaster James Tracy will describe how this young school has become a model of how to bring out the best in young students. Elaine Kirshenbaum, Boston University Trustee and Chair of the Academy’s Trustees Committee, will also discuss the school’s rise and future growth.
Several faculty members will present original research they have completed through Metcalf Fellowships. “We’d like to share these results and lessons with schools around the country to help them further innovations that are substantive and engaging,” says Tracy.
Housed on the campus of Boston University, the Academy is a coeducational day school for students in grades 8 through 12. Unlike traditional college-preparatory schools, its program provides a seamless transition between high school and college by giving students access to college facilities and college-level classes while maintaining a highly supportive high school environment.
