Why Choose CFS
CFS Students Know No Limits
For nearly a century, CFS has provided an environment where boys learn to succeed — in school and in life. Our intense, challenging curriculum combined with a wide variety of academic, athletic, social and extracurricular activities, enables students to develop to the fullest extent of their potential in mind, body and spirit.
Our singular focus on educating boys yields many significant benefits, including:
- Fostering intellectual risk-taking, academic curiosity and a love of learning
- Developing the whole person through a balanced curriculum that includes music, art and multiple opportunities for creative expression
- Establishing self esteem, self confidence and respect for self and others
- Reinforcing leadership characteristics through positive role models
Nearly 100% of our students go on to college.
Recent graduates are enrolled at Carnegie Mellon, Emory, Franklin & Marshall, Haverford, Johns Hopkins, Pepperdine, Rutgers and Swarthmore, as well as the universities of Chicago, Delaware, Illinois, Michigan and Virginia. Click here to view the college admissions placements of graduates.
CFS is uncommonly affordable
Thanks to the blessing of a strong endowment and loyal group of donors, CFS is able to provide a first rate education at an uncommonly affordable price. Every student at CFS receives a scholarship.
Our ethnic and geographic diversity provides a truly multicultural experience for our entire school community
CFS is fortunate to have a student body that embodies and celebrates ethnic and geographic diversity, with more than 13 states and six foreign nations represented. CFS students are immersed in a truly global community, an experience which, in an ever-‘flattening’ world, better prepares them for college and life beyond. Simply put, there is no 'majority' at CFS.
