The Fessenden School
Located just minutes from historic Boston MA, Fessenden is the oldest and most prestigious U.S. boarding school for boys, ages 11-15, in the U.S. Fessenden embraces a student-centered, teacher-supported approach that promotes interactive exchange over direct instruction, collaboration over competition, and learning for life over learning for school.
The Fessenden boarding experience is specifically designed to provide the academic, social, and emotional support boys need during their critical pre-teen/teen years. And, with a weekend program considered to be one of the best in the country, it is no wonder that Fessenden attracts students from across the U.S. and around the globe.

The Gow School
The Gow School is a college-prep boarding and day school for students, grades 6-12, with dyslexia and similar language-based learning disabilities. Focusing on small class sizes, 3-7 students per class, and a low 4:1 student to faculty ratio, The Gow School offers a multisensory approach to teaching that enables dyslexic students to thrive. The Gow community has a sense of belonging, of equality, and of connection born on common trials and shared triumph.
In July, the school’s co-ed summer program is five weeks of learning and fun for ages 8-16! The Gow School Summer Program is for students who have been experiencing academic difficulties, or have been diagnosed with dyslexia or specific learning disabilities. The Summer Program runs from the end of June to early August with morning academics, afternoon fun and games and weekend adventures! The Gow School Summer Program gives students academic tools and self-confidence they can take with them wherever they go; to the classroom and beyond.
