BHS Students Qualify to Receive John & Abigail Adams Scholarship

Congratulations to the 68 members of the class of 2018 on their qualifying to receive a John and Abigail Adams Scholarship.  This scholarship represents the level of academic excellence and college and career preparation we want all BHS students to aspire to.  The faculty and staff at BHS commend these students for their hard work and dedication to their studies.

From the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education:
The John and Abigail Adams Scholarship provides a tuition waiver for up to eight semesters of undergraduate education at a Massachusetts state college or university. The scholarship covers tuition only; fees and room and board are not included. The scholarship must be used within six years of a student's high school graduation.


Beginning with the class of 2016, in order to be eligible for the scholarship, students must
  • score at the Advanced performance level on one of the three high school state assessment tests in ELA, Mathematics, or STE (Biology, Chemistry, Introductory Physics, or Technology/Engineering); AND
  • score at the Proficient level or higher on the remaining two high school state assessment tests; AND
  • have combined scores from the three tests that place them in the top 25 percent of students in the graduating class in their district.


Scholarship eligibility is based on each student's first attempt at taking the spring grade 10 MCAS tests in ELA and Mathematics (and for students in the class of 2016 and beyond, first attempt at taking one of the four STE tests). In order to receive the scholarship, a student must be enrolled in a Massachusetts public high school in his or her senior year. Students who qualify for the scholarship will receive award letters and further information in the fall of their senior year.
