The Cambridge School of Weston's longstanding dedication to—and leadership in—progressive education is what sets us apart:
Our academic program, known as “The Mod System,” offers breadth, depth, and intensity you won’t find at any other school. Creative thinking and the willingness to take risks are essential to our course of study. Students take three immersive, inquiry-based courses at a time so they can truly dive in and get the most out of each class. Each mod is six weeks long, and there are six mods across the school year.
With over 250 courses to chooses from, our dynamic curriculum offers an engaging combination of challenge and choice. Students balance engaging foundational courses with exploration and in-depth study as they choose from offerings like: "Propositional Calculus and Logic," "The Biology of Cancer," "Wearable Art," "Japanese Women Writers," and "Dissent in World History."
Our vibrant community is made up of accomplished students and faculty, all deeply motivated to learn, teach, and lead. We recognize the potential of every human being, and are committed to helping each student cultivate their unique voice and perspective. Values like diversity, equity, empathy, and inclusion are core to who we are. At CSW, you can be who you want to be.
Commitment to Social Justice
CSW has always been known for its enduring commitment to social justice. In fact, we were the first high school in the country to introduce a social justice graduation requirement. PACE, our new co-curricular program, expands that commitment, delivering a comprehensive, integrated approach to social justice, service learning, and leadership and character development.

The Cambridge School of Weston is a progressive high school for day and boarding students in grades 9–12 and PG. CSW's mission is to provide a progressive education that emphasizes deep learning, meaningful relationships, and a dynamic program that inspires students to discover who they are and what their contribution is to their school, their community and the world.
