The Montrose School will open the doors to its first permanent campus in downtown Medfield later this month, thanks in part to financial backing from the state.
MassDevelopment, a quasi-public agency that encourages development in the state, provided a $6 million tax-exempt bond that will help pay for the renovation of buildings and construction of athletic fields at the school's new 13.5-acre site.
The bond proceeds will also help the school refinance existing loans used to purchase the property.
MassDevelopment's support of the Montrose School was part of $17.5 million in tax-exempt bonds issued by the state on behalf of three private schools.
