BPE's mission is to drive exceptional outcomes for all students by developing great teachers and great schools. For three decades, BPE has devised solutions to the toughest challenges faced by Boston’s students and teachers by weaving together expertise in teacher training and school development.




BPE has prepared over 500 teachers for Boston's public schools through the nationally recognized and replicated Boston Teacher Residency program. Today, BPE is redesigning schooling for students and teachers by creating neighborhood-based Teaching Academies, schools which provide a world-class education for all students while preparing outstanding new teachers for the Boston Public Schools.

BPE launched its first Teaching Academy, the Dudley Street Neighborhood Charter School, in 2012, and began to operate its second, the Dearborn STEM Academy, in July 2015. In 2013, BPE created the Dudley Promise Corps to further leverage the power of national service to provide high-quality extended learning time and academic support to students in the Dudley neighborhood. www.bpe.org.
