Boston

Beautiful City Campus

Day

Boston is the proud home of Harvard Medical School, Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Joslin Diabetes Center, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Heath Sciences, and much more. Each day, more than 57,000 researchers and physicians and 29,000 students are practicing and providing healthcare at the highest possible levels.

Students take classes and reside at The Newman School in the beautiful Back Bay neighborhood of Boston. The academic building is on Marlborough Street, and the residence building is right around the corner on Beacon Street. 

BLI utilizes the state-of-the-art science labs and pristine classrooms, students have access to the picturesque green, outdoor space.

Always supervised, Boston students have access to the history, beauty, and world famous sights the city has to offer. Students often head out on small excursions after class and longer, full-day field trips on the weekends so they can see as much as they can.

Our Boston campus is ideal for students who use public transportation or parents who would rather drop them off in the morning. Additionally, if a student can be dropped at South Station in the morning, our campus is a quick bus ride away. Parents who prefer to drop students off in the morning will find that our location is accessible via car. It’s one of the simplest locations to drive to in Boston, and ideal for parents who commute to Cambridge each day!

Residential

When classes end at 3:30 pm, students may head home or stay for our extended day program until 5:00 pm at no extra charge. Students can participate in organized, counselor-led outdoor activities such as sports, or movies on a rainy day. This allows day students the opportunity to bond with classmates, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, and discuss the day’s lessons and labs.

Some residential students stay at the dorms, which are updated and air-conditioned facilities. Counselors take attendance and walk their students to class every morning, making sure each student is accounted for with plenty of time to head to class. Students can enjoy breakfast in the residential dining facility before class so they’re ready to start the day!

Students return to the residential building after classes, once again chaperoned by counselors who have accounted for every student. They can have dinner with their peers, enjoy movies, participate in organized activities, and take counselor-led walks around the city.

Students have enjoyed Mark Wahlberg’s restaurant, Wahlburgers, visited the Museum of Fine Arts, toured Boston’s famous Jersey Street, shopped on Newbury Street and much more. There are also countless international restaurants, a movie theater within walking distance, and the Back Bay Fens, Boston’s largest park where the students play basketball, soccer, or run on the track. And let’s not forget – Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox, is right there!

There is a director who has immediate access to students’ medical records, allergies, contact information, and parent information, and the director is the primary contact person for parents. The security office is directly next to our dorm. All emergency numbers are posted in the dorm’s lobby, and all counselors have these numbers programmed into their phones.
