Dana Hall

Beautiful Greater Boston Campus

Day

Students attend classes and dorm at the Dana Hall School. Dana Hall is an elite private boarding school in Wellesley, MA, an affluent suburb of Boston. You probably recognize the name – Wellesley College is right up the street. Classes take place in state of the art labs and classrooms right in the center of campus.

After the programs end at 3:30pm, our day students can either head home or join us for extended day activities until 5:00pm, at no extra charge. This great option enables them to have fun while they wait for a parent or train, or just bond with their new friends.

At Dana Hall, students typically enjoy volleyball in the grassy space next to the dorms and play other great games as well including Kan Jam, disc golf, croquet, bocce ball, and spike ball. Dana Hall has numerous outdoor playing fields as well as tennis courts that are available for day and residential student use. On rainy days, the fun moves indoors, and students enjoy board games, cards, and party games.

Residential

Those who select our Dana Hall campus stay at one of the most premier and expensive boarding schools in the United States. It is an independent boarding and day school for girls during the academic school year in Wellesley, MA. Dormitories are air-conditioned and have free internet access. The common rooms feature a flat screen television. All dorms are equipped with kitchens for students to cook their favorite breakfast or make special recipes. A counselor will always stay in each dorm with the students. Additionally, single and double rooms are available.

Dana Hall’s beautiful campus contains multiple manicured playing fields and tennis courts. The 93,000 square foot athletic center holds squash courts and a gymnasium with two NCAA regulation sized basketball courts. A three-lane suspended indoor track encircles the second floor of the gymnasium. A state of the art sound system provides music for workouts and dance. The weight/fitness room features treadmills, stationary bicycles, elliptical trainers and rowing machines as well as free weights and offers sweeping water views of the pond.
