Bunker Hill Community College is a multi-campus institution with vibrant, urban campuses in Boston, Massachusetts, in nearby Chelsea, Massachusetts, and at three satellite locations in the Greater Boston area. Recently re-certified as a Leader College by Achieving the Dream, BHCC is part of the Massachusetts public higher education system, which includes 15 community colleges. Founded in 1973, BHCC is the largest community college in Massachusetts, serving more than 14,000 students each semester across all modes of instruction. The College offers more than 100 certificate and degree programs that prepare students to enter four-year institutions or to enter the workforce prepared for better and more highly skilled jobs. Sixty-seven percent of students are people of color and more than 50 percent are women.

Bunker Hill Community College established a satellite site in the City of Chelsea in 1988, and a decade later, in 1998, permanently relocated the Chelsea Campus in the historic, former Post Office facility in Bellingham Square.  The Campus provides educational services to the residents of Chelsea, Revere, Everett, East Boston, and surrounding communities.  Four essential areas of programming for the Campus are:  1) Adult Basic Education - ABE, 2) English for Speakers of Other Languages - ESOL, 3) College Readiness programs such as TRIO and Ramp Up, and 3) College academic programs in Allied Health and associated courses in lab sciences and General Education. The City of Chelsea was recently awarded a Working Cities grant from the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston to further the effort of planning and renewal.  The resulting project, Chelsea Works, is a broad initiative to revitalize the neighborhood of Bellingham/Sheffield, where the Chelsea Campus is located.   The City was also chosen by the American Civic League as the recipient of the 2014 All-American City award.   Chelsea’s population grew 6.7% from 2010 to 2013, with 62% of its 37,670 residents being Hispanic or Latino.  55% of the residents speak Spanish at home.  Chelsea Campus enrollment (headcount) grew from 3,150 in 2009 to 3,821 in 2013, showing a 21% increase.  There is a pressing need for college preparation programs and high quality career-technical education programs that will pave the way for high-wage, high-demand entry-level careers
