The development expands CEG’s international education portfolio in Boston, adding to the CATS Academy international high school, the ONCAMPUS Boston university pathway centre and junior summer camps.

The Boston Academy of English will be incorporated into the Stafford House School of English brand, complementing the current portfolio of UK schools in London, Brighton and Canterbury.

In a press release, CEG said Boston Academy of English offered a prime downtown location, premium facilities and a dedicated student residence only 25 minutes away.

Fergus Brownlee, CEO of the group, said, “We can now offer our quality network of partners a full portfolio of programmes in the education capital of the US. Boston Academy of English will further raise our status as an unrivalled institution of learning, whilst allowing us to provide the finest and most comprehensive range of educational facilities in the city.”

Boston Academy of English was established in 1996 by current owners Marisa and Ken Krall and recently moved to new state-of-the-art facilities. Both will be remaining in their roles to ensure a smooth transition of ownership.

Director of Stafford House School of English, Stephan Roussounis, said, “When we met Marisa and Ken Krall and visited the centre, we knew immediately that this was the right fit for Stafford House, offering the same commitment to quality service, premium facilities and excellent teaching that we constantly strive for.”

Stafford House will be accepting bookings for Boston from January 2014.
