I have made so many meaningful connections here.

"There isn't a time I walk across campus without saying hi to someone I know. The best part is that they aren't just random greetings, but reinforcements of the meaningful connections I've made throughout the year. Each connection is fostered into a net of support, and I have nothing but love for everyone on campus."

— MJ, Waltham, MA
Life at CSW grooves to its own rhythm, from the fast and exciting pace of our Mod System to the slow hum of Sunday afternoons. Whatever the beat, our students will find a warm, spirited community that values intellectual challenge, creativity, and individual growth.
We empower students from day one to step up, speak up, and begin shaping their CSW experience. Our students play an essential role in shaping our community—and the policies that govern it—through leadership opportunities on the Advisory Board and Dorm Board, active discourse at Town Meetings, Boarding Life, and school-wide assemblies. Students have many opportunities to participate in clubs and activities on campus. If they can’t find a specific activity that suits their interests, they can create one!
Here, we are on a first-name basis—from our head of school to incoming first year students—a deliberate practice that has helped create an open, accepting, and respectful environment among students and adults. Finding ways to foster deep and meaningful relationships are at the heart of what we do, and the connections forged here last well beyond graduation.
We believe that diversity of thought, action, background and approach to problem-solving are at the core of discourse and decision-making. The principles of equity and social justice are central to the fabric of life at CSW and considered essential to sustaining a vibrant school community.
