our history

TechBoston Academy graduated its first class in June 2006. In 2006, 92% of the first graduating class went to college as compared to 63% of Boston Public School students. The 54 members of the class of 2006 received just over $1,000,000 in scholarships and financial aid. In 2010, 93% of the graduating class went to college as compared to 61% of Boston Public School students.

The TBA class of 2010 received over $2,000,000 in scholarships and financial aid. Since opening its doors, TechBoston Academy has distinguished itself through its students’ achievements on the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment (MCAS) test.
