BC Experience

Though BCE is typically offered as a residential experience, out of an abundance of caution and a desire to keep our students and our community safe, for the summer of 2021 the Boston College Experience will once again be offered in an entirely virtual format. We have built upon the success of our online offerings last summer, transitioning a few more of our residential programs online, and will be expanding our online offerings for both credit and on-credit courses.

Experience college life. Imagine your future.

The Boston College Experience (BCE) provides high school students the opportunity to study with Boston College over the summer. Students participate in carefully curated academic, social and cultural content intended to expose them to a college-like experience and prepare them for life after high school. As part of BCE students interact with Boston College faculty, current students and alums as well as with peers from around the globe to develop personal and professional networks and develop friendships of a lifetime!

Due to an abundance of concern related to the current public health crisis, Boston College will not be able to offer a residential experience for high school programs for the summer of 2021. We will be expanding our online offerings for both credit and non-credit courses.
