English school in Boston Harvard Square

Study alongside the great minds of Harvard University in this scholarly city of cobbled streets and tranquil parks

Our Boston Harvard Square school

The ivy-covered walls and green lawns of Harvard are just across the road from our school, and a short bus ride will take you to attend open workshops and lectures at MIT. Boston is home to eight world-class universities, and as one of America’s oldest cities, it’s just as rich in history as it is in learning. Follow the Freedom Trail from the golden dome of Massachusetts State House to the site of the Battle of Bunker Hill, and visit the floating museum that commemorates the Boston Tea Party.

  • Moments away from bus and rail links offering rapid access to Downtown, and historic sites like Boston Common, Fanueil Hall and the rest of the Freedom Trail
  • An exciting activities program includes evening boat cruises, whale watching trips and dinner at local restaurants
  • The Boston Harvard Square English school regularly arranges weekend trips to Washington, D.C. and New York

”When I arrived here five months ago I couldn't listen to someone in English and my reading skills were limited. Nowadays I can listen well, I can read not only trivial things but also academic articles, and I can discuss many different topics. My best friends at Kaplan are from China and Turkey. I am Brazilian. I don’t have any other way instead of talking in English to them.”
