Boston Green Academy and AABE

Meet & Greet

Boston Green Academy welcomes diverse students of all abilities, educates and empowers them to succeed in college and career, and prepares them to lead in the sustainability of our community and world.

Boston Green Academy is a special place, a Horace Mann ‘in-district’ Charter School that is proudly part of the Boston Public Schools. Founded in 2011 by a committed group of Boston educators and community members, BGA is Boston’s only school focused on sustainability and preparing the next generation of diverse leaders for college and green careers.

 

Asked by the Boston Public Schools to turn around a struggling high school, BGA successfully ‘re-started’ Odyssey High School in South Boston and in three years became the most improved high school in the Boston Public Schools and one of the most improved state-wide. In 2014, BGA moved to the historic Taft Building in Brighton and began our expansion to include middle grades, starting with a 6th grade. In 2017, BGA achieved our goal of becoming a full school for grades 6-12 serving approximately 500 students from every neighborhood and background in Boston. BGA continues to be one of the most improved and innovative schools in the Boston Public Schools.

AABE Greater Boston was able to meet with BGA students to discuss the energy industry and its challenges. Showcasing a trivia game with the students on the energy sources around the world was a hit! This is the beginning of a wonderful partnership. Next stop, a trip to a solar farm! Stay tuned.
