Greater Wellesley location
You probably recognize the name Wellesley – Wellesley College is not far away. Our location is right on the Needham/Wellesley line.
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.
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. We have 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.
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.
The charming town of Wellesley is one of Boston’s most sought-after suburbs. Students, together with their counselors, have access to great eateries in downtown Wellesley such as fun ice cream shops and pizza spots. Students can enjoy hikes around Lake Waban, walks through Wellesley College’s campus, and trips following the Brook Path to conservation land and nearby stores. Additionally, the commuter rail stops in Wellesley and offers easy access to downtown Boston.
