School Overview

Located in the Grove Hall neighborhood of Dorchester, Mother Caroline Academy (MCA) is a private, tuition-free school for girls in grades 4-8 from families with limited financial means. Building the path to high school requires high standards and an in-depth understanding of each student's individual gifts and challenges. As a school accredited by the Association of Independent Schools of New England (AISNE), we hold students to a high set of academic standards across Math, Science, English, History, Ethics and Art. Serving girls of all faiths, races and cultures from Boston neighborhoods, the mission of the school is to provide a high quality education that develops the individual gifts of each student and prepares her for success in competitive secondary schools and college.
