Boston is a cosmopolitan city and has the second largest concentration of international students in the US, making it a welcoming place for global students. It is a small city by US standards which means it is easy to get to know and get around – a place to feel comfortable. Stafford House Boston is located right in the heart of downtown Boston just moments from the green space of Boston Common and historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace. Our school is accessible by the MBTA on the Green and Red line at the Park Street stop or the Orange line at the Downtown Crossing stop. On the Blue line, we are a 5-minute walk from the State Street stop.


Our school is designed to the highest specifications.
