Program Description

Our students are 56% Black, 34% Latino, 6% White, 4% Asian, Multi-racial, Native American. 77% qualify for free and reduced lunch and many will be the first in their families to go on to college. Our students live in the city of Boston, MA. We are committed to providing college access and information to our students. The Office of High School and College Success (OHSCS) at Brooke Charter Schools exists to be a resource for Brooke alumni who did not have the opportunity to attend Brooke High School. Brooke High School was founded in August 2016 with a founding class of 70 9th grade students. The mission of OHSCS is to provide support so that Brooke alumni are prepared with the skills and experiences necessary to graduate from a college or university.

Some of the ways we do this is:

  • Academic advising
