    Who is eligible to participate in Boston Saves?

    The pilot version of Boston Saves is currently available in eleven BPS schools, but will start to expand to all Boston district schools in Fall 2019, with charter schools to follow. We are starting with the smaller “pilot” version of Boston Saves to make sure the program is the best that it can be before it is made available across the city.

    During the pilot, only students in certain grades at our pilot schools will be able to participate in Boston Saves (see below). All students at our pilot schools will be able to access financial tips and resources.
