Environmental Science Career and Technical Education Pathway

Boston Green Academy is the only high school in the Boston Public Schools to offer an Environmental Science & Technology career pathway program. Students who complete this pathway are prepared to continue their education in college or enter the workforce in a variety of environmental fields such as water quality specialists, environmental scientists and engineers, community and state officials, and other environmental organizations to investigate real-world environmental issues. Graduates of the Environmental Science pathway program are certified in First Aid and CPR, 10-hour OSHA general industry safety certificate, and OSHA 40-hour Hazardous Waste Operations. Students are also trained in wastewater and drinking water technologies, and are prepared to take the Massachusetts Class II Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators and Massachusetts Grade I Drinking Water Treatment Exams administered by the State of Massachusetts. The program culminates in a 6-week internship with an environmental organization or company of their choice.
