“Every child in every neighborhood, no matter their starting point, deserves a quality education. I am encouraged to see school leadership and teachers across all schools, from public to private to charter, use the partnership that the Compact provides to share best practices and address some of our most pressing and difficult challenges."
- Mayor Martin J. Walsh


"We share common goals with our friends across sectors to develop each child's individual gifts and are committed to the important task of improving education for all our children in Boston."
- Kathy Mears, Superintendent of Catholic Schools, Boston


"Collaboration of best practices is a proven way to improve strategies that increase academic rigor and narrow opportunity and achievement gaps for all of our students."
- BPS Superintendent Tommy Chang


"Our students are our number one priority, and our teachers are our number one asset. Both will benefit from collaborative efforts."
- Shannah Varón, Executive Director at Boston Collegiate Charter School

The Boston Compact is a community of district, charter, and Catholic school educators, administrators, and schools who believe that multi-sector engagement is a powerful way to drive meaningful change for students in Boston.

We bring a diverse array of perspectives, experiences and knowledge to address challenges in the city’s education ecosystem.

We share a commitment to improving outcomes for historically underserved students, particularly students with disabilities, Black and Latino boys, and English learners.
