Hello from CSW!

While we'd much prefer to welcome you in person, we are excited to welcome you to our virtual admissions landing page for The Cambridge School of Weston. Though we will not be hosting visitors to campus this fall, we remain committed to introducing you to our extraordinary program and faculty through a robust series of virtual offerings throughout the upcoming months. Fill out this form to make sure you're notified of our fall virtual events!

We invite you to take a look around to learn more about who we are and what we're all about. If you encounter any questions along the way, please don't hesitate to reach out!

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.

"CSW has made me a better person."

"CSW has made me a better person overall: more empathetic, stronger, and smarter. Thanks to the challenge and flexibility of the curriculum, I have become more diligent and have learned to persevere through hard work and difficult questions. I've learned that I can do anything I set my mind to."
