Parking, Transportation & Police


There are selected areas on the Grafton campus designated for student, employee, and client parking. Authorized vehicles are identified by a parking permit, which can be obtained online here.  The annual charge for student parking decals is $15.00.

Public Transportation

Students enjoy easy access to campus from surrounding areas with the school's proximity to the Grafton Station on the MBTA Framingham/Worcester Line Commuter Rail. From the station, exit the parking lot and take a right onto Pine Street and a left onto Route 30 (Westboro Road). The Cummings School campus is just up the road.
