Campus Life

The Math/Science Upward Bound Program, in conjunction with UMass-Boston, is hosted on the 187-acre campus of Noble and Greenough School in Dedham. A coeducational, partial-boarding school serving students in grades 7 through 12, Nobles makes available its vast array of academic buildings, residential and athletic facilities, and playing fields. Facilities including a swimming pool, gym, tennis courts and several playing fields, are available for use during organized activities and in leisure time. Ten counselors live in the dorm with the 50 students and provide round-the-clock supervision. MSUB students, faculty and staff eat their meals as a community in the school cafeteria or "The Castle," an H.H. Richardson-inspired mansion that presently houses food facilities and some faculty and staff.

Faculty and Staff                                                                                                             Back to Top

Demonstrating Nobles' commitment to MSUB, the program's faculty comes primarily from the Nobles teaching community. Our counselors (C/A) are upper-level college students and all are either Nobles or UB graduates. A registered nurse is on-call at all times, and a licensed lifeguard is available during swim time.
