Chefs from popular restaurants in the Boston area and beyond dish out their wisdom at BCAE, where a smorgasbord of classes unfolds every week. While working side-by-side with them, students get their hands dirty by creating whatever’s on the menu for that class. Workshops range from cheese making and roll-your-own sushi to more technical topics such as knife skills.

Enjoy traditional American cuisine at The North Star, home of American comfort food. Come prepared to feast at The North Star — with no low-fat options, any diets will need to be put aside for the moment. Just because you're out on the town doesn't mean you have to miss the game. TVs are on in the bar area to give you all the latest scores. Ideal for birthday parties or other large get-togethers, The North Star has all the room you'll need to be comfortable. Music lovers will appreciate The North Star's freshly mixed tunes spun by live DJs. Be prepared to raise your voice, though — the restaurant can get noisy. If crowds aren't your thing, it's best to visit The North Star during the slower weekday hours. The North Star is completely informal — dress as you see fit (and are most comfortable). If you're in a hurry, place an order for pickup instead. Drivers can park in the neighboring lot. Need a break from the road? Public transportation is also convenient, with popular stops at North Station (Fitchburg/South Acton, Green, Haverhill, Lowell, Newburyport/Rockport, Orange), Haymarket Station (Green, Orange), and Bowdoin Station (Blue). The menu at The North Star is reasonably priced, with most items costing less than $30.

After acing the SAT, students head to college and enter a huge variety of careers, from comedy to computer programming to creative design. Several of these former students sought to help others conquer the feared test at Boston Test Prep’s online-only study center. The staff designed the program to appeal to kids of the digital age—students can log on anytime, anywhere, and direct their own studies. Some might read through all the lessons and then work on practice quizzes, and others might leap right into the quizzes, pausing to link to lessons and slideshows on questions that stymie them, such as, "How many bears are there?" They’ll also learn tips on taking the test, such as mastering common question types, identifying tricks, and making smart guesses. As students work, a points system motivates them to hit a high score, much like in a video game.
