What is the Persistence Project? 

At Boston Prep, we are dedicated to ensuring our students get into college, receive the necessary financial support, and succeed once there.  Our college preparatory services begin in 6th grade and continue throughout students’ entire time at Boston Prep.  In high school, college counseling services are highly individualized, with counselors helping all students find a college that is the right fit for them.  When our graduates enter college, we continue to provide support through the form of personalized coaching, professional development opportunities, tutoring support as needed, book stipends, and emergency financial support.
