Global education specialist Cambridge Education Group has announced the acquisition of Boston Academy of English, completing its international portfolio presence in the city.

The exciting expansion means that the language school will join the Group’s international High School, CATS Academy, its university pathway centre, ONCAMPUS Boston and its junior summer camp, in providing programmes to international and domestic students in Boston.

Boston Academy of English offers a prime downtown location, premium facilities, and a dedicated student residence located only 25 minutes away. The School will be integrated into the Stafford House School of English group – which has over60 years’ experience of providing international students with English language courses in the UK.

The acquisition willcomplement the current Stafford House portfolio of UK schools in London, Brighton and Canterbury.

CEO Fergus Brownlee 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.”

The current owners, Marisa and Ken Krall, established the school in 1996 and recently moved into state-of-the-art facilities right in the heart of Boston. They will both be remaining in their roles, ensuring 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 School of English will be accepting bookings for Boston from January 1st 2014.
