Hello from CSW!

Our application deadline for fall 2022 has passed, though we're still considering applications for a few openings in specific grades. Please call the Admissions Office (781.642.8650) for more details. During this rolling phase of the admissions process, we will continue to consider applications for as long as space remains; once spaces are filled, students may be accepted for a space on our waitlist.

The Cambridge School of Weston has been at the forefront of educational innovation since our founding in 1886. Our progressive pedagogy is rooted in the student-centered philosophy of John Dewey, who advocated active, experiential learning within a curriculum designed to accommodate the interests of individual students. In his eyes—and ours—education is not simply the acquisition of content and proficiency. It’s also a way for students to develop and refine the skills required to become informed, engaged, and effective participants in a democratic society. 

We believe that the world needs such citizens—individuals who not only have technical competence and skill, but who are also awake to their unique talents and who have developed ways to bring their distinctive skills and perspectives to what the world will ask of them.
