College Counseling

The Boston University Academy experience provides an invaluable perspective as students make decisions about life after high school. Seniors have reaped the benefits of an intimate academic setting. They have also successfully navigated an urban University campus and caught a glimpse of what it means to be a college student. The college counseling program at BUA is designed to inform and support students and families at each step in the college search and application process. College counselors work with students and families individually in an effort to understand the type of academic programs and campus communities that will be the best matches following BUA.

Boston University Academy seniors in good academic and disciplinary standing enjoy guaranteed admission to Boston University. In a typical year, approximately 10-15% of BUA’s graduating seniors enroll at Boston University in a full-time degree-seeking program. Many of those students have earned prestigious scholarships, research opportunities, or advanced standing in their academic program of choice. Approximately 85-90% of BUA students enroll at other four-year colleges and universities across the US and around the world.
