A Letter from the Headmaster

Dear ACC Community,

We are very excited to open the doors of our new school in Hyde Park to students and families! We are located at 612 Metropolitan Avenue, Hyde Park, MA. Boston Public Schools has built a beautiful new home for Another Course to College (ACC) with state of the art labs, facilities, and a new library media center, as well as an outdoor area full of green space for students to learn in a safe and welcoming environment.

As always, ACC stays focused on our mission of providing a rigorous college preparatory curriculum in a small, nurturing environment. Through dedication of students and staff, and teamwork with families, ACC can be counted as one of the highest performing schools in our district. This year we have expanded our arts offerings with 2D and 3D advanced art, in addition to visual art, dance, and theater arts. We also have four new online Advanced Placement courses, expanding STEM. Additionally, we will have five new electives, such as financial literacy and global issues. We strive to give as many opportunities to each student to fill his or her schedule with classes that excite and inspire learning connected to ACC students’ interests.

If you have any questions, please contact the school at 617-635-8865 and we will be more than happy to talk with you and offer support. Come by for a tour of the new space anytime – we welcome you to visit. I truly hope you have had a wonderful summer and here is to an academic year full of success!
