Match Charter Public School (Match) is an innovative, high-performing free public school in Boston. Match is widely recognized for its success in preparing students for success in college and careers.

Match currently includes four campuses, and these campuses span grades preK-12. Match is expanding, and 1,250 students will ultimately be enrolled in Match.

Throughout the preK-12 experience, students at Match experience the following:

At least two hours per day of individualized tutoring in addition to conventional class-based instruction
An extended school day
World-class teachers
Unwaveringly high expectations
Children must be at least four years old to enroll at Match. Once a child is enrolled at Match, the student may remain at a Match campus until high school graduation.

Any child in the state of Massachusetts may enter an annual public lottery to attend Match; residents of Boston and siblings of current students receive priority. Match does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, creed, sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental or physical disability, age, ancestry, athletic performance, special need, proficiency in the English language or in a foreign language, or prior academic achievement. Match encourages all students to enter the lottery.
