Wellesley And Boston

Dana Hall School is located 12 miles from Boston and is the only girls’ 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, home to about 26,000 people. It also is home to exceptional colleges that enrich the town's culture: Wellesley College and Babson College are right in Wellesley, and Olin College of Engineering is just over the town line in Needham.

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 Hall’s educational resources, with faculty leading field trips to the Museum of Fine Arts, Plimoth Plantation, and labs in the city’s world-class health care centers.
