Boston Charter School Application
Excel Academy is one of 15 Boston charter schools utilizing a single, unified application for student enrollment.
The Boston Charter School Application 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.

An Excel Academy Education
Excel Academy is a network of tuition-free charter public schools including three middle schools and one high school. Prospective students can apply to grades 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Students are admitted 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.
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.
In 2015, we opened the doors to the first high school in our network, Excel Academy Charter High School. Students admitted to Excel middle schools are now guaranteed a college-preparatory education through 12th grade.
