life at governor's: a global view

Whether you're here for 10 hours a day or 24, Governor's will open the world to you.

Motivated students from the Boston area and around the globe come together in a home away from home. Vibrant, fascinating people—including teachers who also serve as coaches and mentors—form a unique synthesis of cultures and life experiences in the comfort of a small town setting.

Governor's invaluable global outlook inspires exchange and study abroad programs, course offerings, class activities, and the welcoming, accepting atmosphere on campus.

The challenge and opportunities of a quintessential New England boarding school merge with a warmth and openness to new ideas and new people that have always made Governor's refreshingly different.

Living at Governor's.
