Full-time programs and continuing education
North Bennet Street School classes are small, with a student teacher ratio of 12:1 or less. Students work closely with instructors, who are masters of their craft, and with each other in an inspiring and supportive environment. The school offers full-time, professional programs in bookbinding, cabinet and furniture making, carpentry, jewelry making and repair, locksmithing, piano technology, preservation carpentry, and violin making and repair. Full-time programs range from nine months to three years. In addition, the school offers more than 70 workshops and short-term courses each year through our continuing education department.
Located in Boston’s historic North End, North Bennet Street School’s 45,000 SF main facility includes a central 19th-century brick plus three attached smaller buildings. The school has workshops and classrooms that provide the space, equipment and machinery necessary for proper instruction in the various fields of training offered at the school. Support services located in the school's main facility include admissions, academic and student services and administrative offices. At the corner of Salem and North Bennet streets, the school is easily identified by a large clock mounted over the North Bennet Street School sign. Nine miles from our main campus, a second location of 10,000 square feet at 60 Lowell Street in Arlington, Massachusetts, houses the Carpentry and Preservation Carpentry programs. A light-filled space near the waterfront in South Boston is home to the Locksmithing program.
