The Boston College Experience provides motivated high school students the opportunity to live and learn as students at Boston College. Through adherence to our Jesuit mission, our programs focus on exposing students to a rich and rewarding college experience through coursework, extracurricular activities and reflection.
Built into the programs are activities that help to prepare students for their college search and the transition into college life. Student will participate in service learning activities, cultural and social outings all while enjoying the beautiful city of Boston over the summer.
These programs, which are 2, 3 and 6 weeks in duriation, aim to give students the chance to experience life as a college student. As such, while the program is committed to providing students a variety of optional social and culture activities in addtion to robust academic programming, we do not schedule the students' every moment. We expect that participants will be able to manage their own time effectively in the safe environment provided for them as part of the BC Experience.
Students can choose to take advantage of the free time in many ways, such as signing up for guided activiites, volunteering, exploring the campus and the city, socializing with classmates and in personal, quiet reflection.
