Visit Us

Our building, an architectural gem in Boston's Back Bay, feels something like a college and something like a home. After applying, and provided public health conditions allow, prospective students and their families are welcome to join us for an in-person visit. If you have yet to apply, you can experience what it’s like to be a member of the Commonwealth community through our virtual tour or during an admissions event

Take a Virtual Tour

With sun-filled art studios and cathedral ceilings, modern science labs and cozy study spots, our building—a classic Boston brownstone in the Back Bay—feels collegial. And like home. You can explore every classroom and student space through our virtual tour, and you’ll see how we’ve adapted for socially distant learning.

Scavenger Hunt

As you venture around our virtual building, see if you can spot:

  • Pomegranates on a ceiling
  • A translucent mermaid
  • Nine skylights
  • Thirteen fireplaces
  • A mural painted on a wall
  • A pool cue in a stair railing

I chose to come [to Commonwealth] because it seemed like the people and the culture were both enthusiastically academic and genuinely kind. During my time here, I discovered my initial impression wasn't wrong.
