Boston College High School (B.C. High) is by far the best and most prestigious private Jesuit preparatory school in the nation. The school is located in Dorchester, MA (a section of Boston) which overlooks Boston Harbor. It is near the Kennedy Library and University of Massachusetts. B.C. High was founded in 1863 and educates over 1500 all male students from grades seven through twelve. Tuition is quite high just like any other Catholic school, but many of the students receive scholarships and financial aid. Due to the schools priorities, students are not recruited based on their athletic abilities, but the football, basketball, baseball, swimming, hockey, golf, soccer, and track teams are amongst the best each season. The schools biggest rival is Catholic Memorial High School (CM). Located a few miles away in West Roxbury. B.C. High was ranked #10 in the nation for top sports programs, it was the only school in New England to be ranked. Students come from all over the state, some even from Rhode Island and New Hampshire to attend. However, the majority of the students come from the city of Boston. 99% of B.C. High graduates go on to attend a 4-year college. In Boston's magazine B.C. High was chosen as the number one high school for "Politicians in Training".
