- Welcome to Mother Caroline Academy & Education Center (MCAEC). We are delighted that you have taken the first step in learning more about us. Mother Caroline is a private learning environment for low-income middle school girls in grades 4-8 and their families. We have successfully reached hundreds of families of greatest need over the years. Founded in 1993 in the Catholic tradition, MCAEC has a proud history of providing an excellent educational experience to middle school girls in inner city Boston. Since its inception, 100% of our girls have graduated from high school and 68% matriculate college. The relationship that we have with our students and their families is critical to student success. Every day at Mother Caroline we have the privilege of providing an environment where we value the leadership, scholarship, spiritual and moral development of our entire community. We encourage, inspire, and challenge our students to bring forth their best selves so that they may be academically and socially prepared to compete in the 21st century. Our commitment to the moral and academic development of middle school girls began with the vision of our founders Sister Rita Brereton, Father Gerald Osterman and Msgr. William Francis. They believed that by investing in girls from low-income families in Boston, that the return on the community would be fruitful, and it has been. Studies have shown that by giving a girl an education, you are not only investing in her life but that of her family, her community and her nation. At Mother Caroline we recognized the importance of not only investing in a girl but her family and community as well.
