    If you have registered for BPS, and your student needs language testing, the Newcomers Assessment Counseling Center (NACC) will contact you and schedule a virtual appointment for your student’s assessment. Appointments are conducted online or by phone. Once your student has completed their language assessment, you will be able to make your school selections.

    We are here to serve you and are happy to offer registration assistance in other languages. For interpretation assistance, please call the Welcome Center at 617-635-9010.
