Partners get us up the mountain, across the river, down to business, and into areas of discovery both for our students and for the broader BGA community.

At BGA, partnerships are created every day, both organically and with intent. Over the years we have built so many important and meaningful partnerships that we sometimes forget that these wonderful people and their services are not actually part of the school; instead, they choose to lean in and help us provide our students and families with the best possible experiential and enrichment options. 

Our list of partners will never be complete, as we are constantly adding organizations and individuals to our growing list of collaborators who provide educational  experiential, and internship opportunities for all students.

We've introduced just a few of our diverse partnerships below. 

Thompson Island is BGA's longest standing partner, providing in-classroom and on-island programming since 2014.

Their commitment to engaging students in outdoor activities, teamwork, and leadership, has been instrumental in the lives of our students. TIOB prepares students for their adventures by visiting classrooms and helping students to confront any misgivings and show up on the island ready to explore.

BGA's Learning for Independence (LFI) program for students with complex disabilities has partnered with Community Rowing for a decade. In the fall and the spring Community Rowing takes students onto the Charles River and provides instruction and support, helping students to build important skills.

The Ed Portal is a Harvard University-wide initiative run in partnership between Harvard Public Affairs & Communications and Harvard College. It is a transformative place where Allston-Brighton and Harvard University communities come together, share ideas, and learn from one another.

Climable is a woman-led nonprofit in Cambridge, MA, with a mission to make climate science and clean energy understandable and actionable for everyone. Climable’s end goals are energy democracy (public participation in the energy transition) and climate resilience (improved avenues for anticipating, preparing for, and responding to climate disasters). 

Our partners at Subaru Metrowest initially showed up at BGA to give us a park bench made entirely out of recycled snack wrappers (and originally created for Boston Calling in 2022), and moved on quickly to become a premiere host site for four senior interns. Their "Subaru Love Promise" is one they deliver on, and we are grateful to be in partnership with a franchise that is in synch with BGA's mission. You can see our interns in action in this video about our 2023 senior internships!

West End House is an innovative and vibrant youth development agency that provides outcome-driven programs to youth residing in the most under-invested communities in the city of Boston. Their high-impact programs, delivered by a dynamic team of professional staff and volunteers, are an important part of our student's exposure to exploring and mastering the arts, developing career readiness skills, and adopting healthy lifestyles.
