What's Up in Massachusetts

Of all the states in the northeast, perhaps none have more prestigious boarding schools than Massachusetts. Academics, athletics, music, acting, and more can all be found at various schools within the state. It has some of the oldest and most challenging schools for students who want to realize their dreams.

Dana Hall School View profile »

Considered to be one of the most competitive boarding schools in which to get accepted, Dana Hall School is an all-girls school for grades 6-12. Located in Wellesley, it is known for high academic standards that result in many of its students being accepted to such schools as Harvard and Boston University.

In addition, it has a strong Alumni program, where past graduates return to help current students by teaching classes, acting as mentors, and giving lectures.

Chapel Hill-Chauncey Hall School

Located in Waltham, this school is coed for grades 9-12 and offers post-graduate work for students as well. Founded in 1828, it has an enrollment of only 175 students. With such low enrollment, the average class size is ten students, giving it a number that is lower than the national average for boarding schools across the nation. Offering an extensive array of athletic and academic options, it’s considered a very good school if individualized instruction is a high priority.

Eagleton School

An all-boys school, Eagleton focuses on treating boys ages 9-22 who have Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, and other communication and cognitive issues. Situated on 40 acres, the campus offers students the chance to participate in therapeutic activities such as horseback riding and adventure-based camping trips. Along with these activities, students can take culinary classes, plant and maintain an organic garden, and learn various vocational skills. To give parents peace of mind, the school provides each student with a private bedroom while also having 24/7 cameras at various points around campus.

Phillips Academy

Coed for grades 9-12, this school in Andover is very prestigious and therefore difficult for many students to gain acceptance into. In fact, the current acceptance rate is only 13 percent, one of the strictest in the nation. However, for those who gain entry, they can expect to find an average class size of 13, Advanced Placement classes, various extracurricular activities and faculty with many years of experience. Founded in 1778, it is well-known for choosing only the top students each year.
