The Eliot School, inspiring lifelong learning in craftsmanship and creativity for all, celebrates its 340th birthday this year. Founded in 1676 as a grammar school, it turned its focus to the manual arts in the late 19th century. Today the school is known for its excellent faculty, welcoming atmosphere and small class size. In its historic schoolhouse, it teaches all ages with classes in woodworking and furniture, sewing and fiber arts, book arts, mixed media and more. Its School Partnership Program sends instructors to teach visual arts and woodworking in Boston’s public schools, libraries, and community centers. A scholarship program helps bridge schoolhouse and partnership programs. A Summer Program for Children and Summer Intensives for adults round out the year. All programs stem from core values that link learning and enjoyment, integrity and excellence, community and inclusion, and continuity and change.
