Broome Street Academy is a tuition free public charter high school that also bears the unique distinction of being the only charter school included in the NYC DOE Community School portfolio. Located in SoHo, and serving the students of all five boroughs, BSA is housed in the same building, and is fully integrated with, The Door—a comprehensive youth development organization celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. BSA’s unique model, structure, and strong partnerships are designed to provide the best possible experience for all students.
BSA caters to students’ needs, whatever they may be. BSA actively seeks out and admits students that will benefit from the unique academic environment it offers. Every single student is welcomed into our supportive community and learning environment. With a staff of four full-time social workers and a student to teacher ratio of 10:1, students get the one-on-one individualized support they need to thrive. BSA also offers extensive college and career advisement, afterschool clubs, Advanced Placement courses, a full athletics program (with championship basketball and volleyball teams), a wide range of socioemotional supports, and a National Honor Society. It is an ambitious, dynamic community with unbounded potential!
Because BSA is centrally located and is integrated with The Door, BSA exposes students to cultural and community opportunities rarely seen at other schools. BSA maintains partnerships with CUNY and private universities for educational partnership and
advancement and offers career programs in retail, internships that can lead to employment, and job fairs. Each of The Door’s programs are available to BSA students, including no-cost health, vision, and dental care.
Students are also encouraged to complete community service projects, further integrating them into their community and expanding their learning. At BSA, every student is seen as a whole person with unique needs and aspirations. Where a student begins does not determine
what their future will be. Students find the support services and resources they need at BSA for their education, and for their lives.
BSA is accepting applications for the 9th grade lottery through April 1st, and all transfers are considered on a rolling basis.
