Welcome to Our School

We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about our school! Tenacre is an elementary school, enrolling 196 children in the metro-west suburbs outside of Boston. We are situated on a beautiful campus in Wellesley, near Wellesley College and adjacent to the Dana Hall School. Tenacre provides an academically challenging environment for students, one that nurtures their intellectual curiosity, stimulates personal growth, and fosters critical thinking. We encourage the physical, moral, and social growth of our children, and strive to prepare them for life in the culturally, racially, and economically complex world that awaits them. As you begin to explore our website, I hope you will begin to see what makes Tenacre such a special place.

On this web site, you will find information about our curriculum, our calendar, our faculty, and all the many exciting activities that take place every day at Tenacre. Our whole Admission process is designed to help you get to know our school better and to decide if Tenacre is the right fit for your family. The best way to learn about our school is to engage with us. We pride ourselves on engaging families in a process that is welcoming, warm, and personal.  Like all schools, we have been challenged by Covid and have altered our process as needed to accommodate any restrictions on visitors imposed by the school.  As you explore our school for your family, we will continue to work hard to connect you with our community, creating ways for you to engage with faculty, administrators and parents. 
We will begin the Admission process for application to Tenacre for the 2023-24 school year in October. You may reach out to set up an individual appointment by calling Elizabeth O'Connell at 781-591-7408 or emailing her at

I look forward to welcoming your family to Tenacre!
