As a k-8 school, we prepare our students for life but more immediately we get the ready for the next step: high school.

Our alumni have either transitioned to their local high school or have attended or been accepted at the following schools:

Academy of Science and Design (ASD), Austin Preparatory School, Brooks Academy, Central Catholic, The Derryfield School, Lawrence Academy, Lowell Catholic, Presentation of Mary Academy, and Trinity High School.

This page is to help our 8th grade parents understand the process of transitioning from The Birches Academy, including key dates to know.
