City on a Hill

City on a Hill Charter Public School is a tuition-free 280-student college preparatory high school open to all students in the City of Boston. City on a Hill serves students who are traditionally underserved by the public school system. CoaH does not have an entrance exam; students are admitted by a random lottery with new students admitted in the ninth grade only. The majority of students arrive significantly below grade level. Nevertheless, 100% of City on a Hill’s students earn proficiency on the MCAS, and 100% of City on a Hill’s graduates earn college acceptance.
