Boston College High School will be one of 17 schools that will compete on the 15th season of the Emmy-award winning “High School Quiz Show,” which will be aired starting this month on GBH.

The BC High boys will join Maynard High School, Roxbury Latin School, St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury, and Cambridge’s Buckingham Browne & Nichols (BB&N) School in the bracket. BB&N won last year’s Season 14 final vs. Mansfield High School, which also returns for the new season.

The tournament-style TV show will also feature former champions Acton-Boxborough Regional High School, Andover High School, Lexington High School, and North Quincy High School.

The bracket was devised based on scores from a “Super Sunday” qualifying event held last November, when 54 teams from across the commonwealth completed a written quiz. The 15 teams with the highest scores from that day automatically qualified for a spot in the competition bracket.

The season premiere is this Saturday (Feb. 3) at 6 p.m. on GBH 2 and on the “High School Quiz Show” YouTube channel.  BC High will face off against Weston High School on March 16 in the qualifying round. Free tickets are available for the Jan. 20-21 and 27-28 live taping dates at GBH’s studios in Brighton.
