BHGHNY's mission is to help academically capable and motivated children from at-risk situations meet their full potential and become men and women for others by providing them with the safe and stable living environment, academic support, and guidance they need to finish high school, graduate from college, and become responsible and productive citizens.
Located in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, NY , BHGHNY operates a rigorous college preparatory boarding program in partnership with Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School. Using a residence next to the school, BHGHNY works year-round to serve at-risk, low-income teens who can excel in a nurturing and demanding academic community. As the region's only urban boarding program, BHGHNY is at the vanguard of youth development and its overall efficacy and approach continue to set new standards in student services and support.
We believe in the transformative power of education to cultivate lifelong learners who rise above disadvantaged backgrounds. Our scholars learn and grow together as we help them bridge gaps through robust enrichment tools, enhanced learning, and safe spaces for development that prepare them for success in post-secondary education.
