Boston Green Academy is an in-district Horace Mann charter school serving grades 6 and 9-12 in the Boston Public Schools.

Our mission is to ensure that all of our students especially those who have struggled will graduate prepared for success in college and the workforce. We prepare our students to be leaders in environmental stewardship and activism, to live their lives responsibly and sustainably, and to be prepared to succeed in the burgeoning green economy. In Fall 2014, Boston Green Academy will open its 6th grade.


Our rigorous academic program, hands-on learning experiences and environmental theme, prepare students for success in college and the workforce.
