Boston Charter School Application
This year, Excel Academy is one of 15 Boston charter schools utilizing a single, unified application for student enrollment!
The Boston Charter School Application launched this year by the Boston Charter Alliance, allows families to apply for multiple children to several charter schools (if they choose) at once using either a mobile phone, iPad or tablet, or computer.
The online application was created to ease the process for families to apply to one, or many, charter schools located in and near Boston. Learn more about the Boston Charter School Application by clicking the video below!
An Excel Academy Education
Excel Academy is a network of three tuition-free public charter middle schools and one tuition-free public charter high school. Prospective students can apply to grades 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Students are admitted to Excel through a blind public lottery process.
Excel Academy was founded to serve the communities of East Boston and Chelsea and work to close the opportunity gap that persists for students in these areas. Most of our current students reside in these two communities. Since our founding, Excel has made significant strides in achieving this goal.
For seven consecutive years, our founding school, Excel Academy East Boston, was in the top five performing public middle schools in Massachusetts based on our students’ MCAS performance. In five of those seven years, the school was number one out of over 450 schools.
Our middle school education is a successful model that takes students who are performing behind entering grade level and preparing them to be outstanding students ready for high school. You can read about our results and achievements here.
In 2015, we opened the doors to the first high school in our network, Excel Academy Charter High School. Students admitted to Excel are now guaranteed a college-preparatory education through 12th grade.
