Living at CATS Academy Boston

Living at CATS Boston is like life on a college campus. Each year we celebrate the arrival of students from the United States and countries all over the world who come to experience an American education while improving their English and learning about other cultures. It is our priority to ensure that our students are safe and happy in our school.

We offer a mix of 449 single and shared rooms with en-suite bathrooms in five purpose-built residences just a short walk across the courtyard from the main school. Each residence is safe and secure, with no unauthorized access, and has a social area for you to get together with your friends and relax.

Why Board At CATS Academy Boston

House Parents
Our House Parents live in the five residences with the students and will provide the support and nurturing needed to thrive. They provide a personalized program that enhances your living experience and promotes a sense of “home”. The House Parents care for, guide, and introduce you to the responsibilities of independent living. They help students to be successful at CATS Boston, building community, learning about other cultures, developing a global perspective, exploring ethics, and making informed choices.

Enjoy Your Free Time
Find space to relax and socialize in one of the dorms’ student lounges, play volleyball or basketball in the spacious gym or frisbee and football on the athletic fields outside the main building. You can even go further afield as we are located just 10 minutes away from a major local shopping mall, and 10 miles to local beaches and the historic heart of downtown Boston.

Evenings On Campus
We treat our students as young people, not children, and the goal is for you to be a self-directed, independent learner. You will spend a minimum of two hours each evening preparing for your classes. Formal study hours in the dorms must be observed from Sunday through Thursday evenings. Students who have earned a place on the Honor Roll are exempt from evening study and may keep their dorm rooms closed and observe quiet hours.

CATS Boston Dining
At CATS Boston, we serve culturally diverse menus featuring traditional favorites, ethnic dishes and international flavors. Chefs and dieticians offer nutrition education programs and wellness events throughout the year to ensure you stay fit and healthy. They also accommodate special dietary needs in a personalized, sensitive manner.

Leaving The Campus
Students have the opportunity to explore further afield. If you wish to leave the campus overnight or leave the Boston area, you can request an exeat from the Attendance Coordinator – this will allow you to explore other parts of the U.S.

Weekend Excursions

The House Parents and Residential Life Team organize exciting and varied weekend trips and excursions for those students living in the dorms. These trips provide the ideal opportunity for students to visit new places, enjoy new experiences and have fun with their friends, while supporting their learning and development as young people.
