Advanced Work Class (AWC)

Advanced Work Class (AWC) is a full-time program in the Boston Public Schools that provides an accelerated academic curriculum for students in grades 4-6.

This program includes subjects studied in greater depth, more schoolwork, and more home study than the traditional curriculum.

Students’ eligibility for AWC is determined by their scores on the Terra Nova (3rd edition) test which is given in the fall of grades 3, 4, and 5.  Student scores determine which students will qualify and be invited to the AWC program.

Due to limited availability, an invitation is not a guarantee of an AWC assignment.
