  1. As a proud BUA parent, I was so pleased to see this article by Joel Brown, which featured student voices and experiences. The success of BUA through the pandemic was not a matter of luck; the wonderful faculty and dedicated staff never let up. The addition of Chris Kolovos as head of school to an already great team has been a boon. Leaders like Rosemary White and Nastaran Hakimi kept the support of student health and wellbeing at the forefront. The pandemic is not over, but students at BU Academy were able to stay safe, and stay on track over the last year, for which my family is deeply appreciative.

  2. This article captures some of the magic of BUA. There is so much more! The courses truly ask each student to think critically about English literature, issues of identity and privilege, history, mathematical reasoning. The courses are demanding – but build in scaffolding. I feel so fortunate to have discovered it for my children to attend.
