Boston is America’s premier college town and one of its most international cities; it’s also one of the nation’s oldest, first incorporated in 1630. Boston is the capital and most populous city of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the United States and it is the gateway to New England, a region composed of six states in the northeastern United States. This vibrant, thriving city is renowned for its cultural facilities, world-class educational institutions, champion sports franchises, as well as its place at the very forefront of American history. Boston is a walkable city, hip and fun with lots to see and do.
Our Boston Summer program is offered on the campus of Tufts University during the months of July and August. Founded in 1852, Tufts is located on a beautiful 150-acre campus in the Medford/Somerville area of Massachusetts, only 5 miles from downtown Boston. It offers the best of both worlds: a safe, suburban campus and fast public transportation access to Boston.
