Dana Hall School is located 12 miles from Boston and is the only girlsâ€™ boarding school in the metropolitan area.
The center of Wellesley is a five-minute walk from campus and is home to many shops and restaurants. It is a safe and welcoming community, and on weekends Dana students often stroll down the street for a frozen yogurt treat or to hop on a train for a 30-minute ride to Boston. There they can take in a dance, music or theater performance, visit outstanding museums, sample international cuisines, or peruse endless boutiques. Outdoor lovers can find their way to the sandy coast of New England or a mountainous hiking trail. The Greater Boston area also extends Dana Hallâ€™s educational resources, with faculty leading field trips to the Museum of Fine Arts, Plimoth Plantation, and labs in the cityâ€™s world-class health care centers.
