Student Life

Academics consume a lot of time and attention at BUA, but studying is far from all that our students do.


Research has shown that student involvement in out-of-classroom activities correlates with increased happiness and greater academic success.  At Boston University Academy, we encourage meaningful student participation in arts, athletics, clubs, school leadership, community service, and school-wide events as a means to pursue non-academic interests, stay healthy, enjoy creative outlets, reduce stress, and build community.
