North Bennet Street School’s mission is to train students for careers in traditional trades that use hand skills in concert with evolving technology, to preserve and advance craft traditions, and to promote greater appreciation of craftsmanship.
The School’s intensive, hands-on training helps students from around the world to achieve meaningful lives and livelihoods. We encourage individual growth and curiosity, along with technical mastery and a commitment to excellence.
We offer both Full-Time programs, for those seeking intensive, career-oriented study, and Continuing Education classes, for those eager to learn a new skill or perfect an existing practice. We also partner with other institutions to teach traditional trades to young adults.
We’ve used the same teaching approach for more than a century, but our course design is always evolving. We shape our course content around the recommendations of our students, graduates, employers, and artisans. Our goal is to prepare you for a successful career, where you’ll use hand skills to build objects that last.
We’re accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC), a private, nonprofit accrediting organization. They ensure education quality and integrity in post-secondary career schools. They accredit more than 800 schools in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, serving more than 250,000 students each year.
