The Program has been launched at Madison Park Vocational-Technical High School.

To qualify, students must graduate from a BPS high school with a minimum GPA of 2.2, be on a path to complete community college within a two-year period, meet the low-income status to receive a federal Pell Grant, complete the FASFA, pass the ACCUPLACERâ„¢ assessment to ensure that developmental classes are not required, and gain admission to either Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) or Roxbury Community College (RCC).
