Dean's Welcome

Dean Boynton

Boston College is committed to shaping life-long learning leaders who can discover innovative and ethical solutions to emerging and changing business conditions. We believe that education is not a destination, but should be a lifetime journey that requires a commitment to new skills and attitudes. Our motto of “Ever to Excel” captures the spirit of this exciting adventure into learning and personal development.

At the Carroll School, we embrace this educational challenge with a passion. I know this because I experienced it firsthand as a Carroll School student. I am honored and proud to be at my alma mater and to work with our faculty and staff, helping our students embark on their own journeys. Please explore our web site— a virtual portrait of our world. Then, come and visit this thriving authentic place. I welcome your questions and comments and would like to hear from you.
