As a part of the Boston College community, our students form lasting relationships with undergraduate students. 


Campus School to Stay at Boston College

March 10, 2014

I am pleased to inform you that Boston College Campus School will continue to be an integral part of Boston College within the Lynch School of Education.

As you may know, Boston College and Franciscan Children’s Hospital were engaged in discussions about a possible affiliation that included potential relocation of the Campus School to the Kennedy Day School.  After extensive conversations with Campus School parents and University students, University officials decided not to pursue this affiliation so that Campus School could continue this truly unique program on the campus of Boston College.

 A strategic plan is being developed that will sustain the school and continue its 43 year history at Boston College.  I look forward to continue working with all of you in providing responsive, transdisciplinary services to your students in need of a highly specialized environment in order to make effective progress.

 Thank you for your support of our program.  If you need any additional information please do not hesitate to contact me at or (617) 552-3223.
