Visit

To get a real sense of Nobles and our community, there’s no better way than to come visit. Our school is situated on 187 acres along the Charles River in Dedham, 10 miles from Boston. Tour the renovated 19th-century castle that serves not only as the dining hall and a home to some of our faculty, but also as the literal and figurative center of school life. Students come from neighboring towns and cities including Boston, Needham, Weston, Newton and Randolph.

To schedule a campus tour, you must first complete an inquiry form.

Get started

After our admission team receives your inquiry form, you’ll receive an email inviting you to schedule a campus tour and interview (upper school) or group session (middle school). In this email, we will send you an Inquiry ID number; you will need the Inquiry ID number to schedule your campus visit and interview or group activity session. To ensure our email isn’t caught in your spam filter, please add “admission@nobles.edu” to your safe senders list.

Schedule A Visit

The Tour: What to Expect

A current Nobles student will lead you on a campus tour and give you an honest perspective on diverse aspects of the school and community. You and your family will have a chance to learn about life at Nobles, including workload, activities, culture, afternoon program and what makes the experience here unique. You’ll visit the classrooms, science labs, library, dance studio, theater, athletic center and more.

Upper School Applicants

If you’re applying to our upper school, you and your family will meet with an admission staff member immediately following your campus tour. The interviewer will speak first with you and your family, then just you, and then your parents. This conversation is as much a time for you and your family to get to know Nobles as it is for us to learn about you. It’s your opportunity to share what’s most important to you, both inside and outside of school.

Middle School Applicants

Middle school applicants visit on two separate dates. You’ll schedule a day to participate in a group activity session, during which an admission staff member facilitates collaborative group projects in a welcoming environment. You are also invited to book a campus tour with a middle school guide on any available date either before or after your small group session. The tour is optional; it is encouraged but not required.

Visit Nobles for an Open House

Just one visit to Nobles reveals the relationships and resources that are our greatest strengths. Learn more about our academics, athletics and arts, college counseling philosophy, our experiential learning program, and, most importantly, our community. Our October and December open houses include a curriculum fair hosted by faculty from each of our academic departments. They also feature half-hour panel discussions on the following topics:
