“Minuteman students gain a competitive advantage by finding their passion, engaging in hands-on learning experiences, and developing professional skills integrated with robust academics and faculty support,” said Edward A. Bouquillon, superintendent-director. “The open house, tours and information sessions are great opportunities for families to make informed decisions about their students’ high school careers.” 

Minuteman High School now offers 19 career technical education majors with the addition of Animal Science this year. Other majors include engineering, biotechnology, environmental science, robotics, culinary arts, cosmetology, plumbing, heating, automotive, carpentry, multimedia and more.
In addition to offering 14 sports teams and 20 clubs and activities, Minuteman provides robust academic programming. Last year, Minuteman received the Massachusetts Reading Award from the Massachusetts Reading Association – the first time a high school has ever received the honor. In 2018, it received a Blue Ribbon School Award from the U.S. Department of Education.
On Nov. 10, Minuteman held its annual “Showcase Day” during the school day. This year, eighth-grade students from Acton, Arlington, Concord, and Lexington, will spend the day touring the school and meeting with current teachers and students.
On Monday, Nov. 15, Minuteman held a virtual information session for parents on Zoom. The session will include a discussion with current parents who will share their experiences with Minuteman. Visit for more information.
