The Church Farm School Approach to Student Success

Academic Preparedness — In addition to a challenging curriculum (view our 2020-2021 Curriculum Guide), we have a college guidance program that finds “best fit” schools for each student, SAT Prep and College Transition courses, and  a variety of  AP and  honors courses.
 
Learning Together — Diversity isn't a sideline issue at Church Farm School — it's a core part of our culture. Your son will learn and grow with students from all over the world and from different socioeconomic backgrounds, perspectives, faiths, and cultures.

Leadership Skills — Students are actively mentored, involved in ambassador and leadership programs, and participate in town halls to discuss important national and worldwide issues, helping them build their dedication to social justice.

Character and Values — Our Episcopal foundation supports our four core values — respect, responsibility, integrity, and brotherhood — and twice-weekly chapel services reflect a variety of faith traditions. Each CFS student upholds our Honor Pledge.

Health & Wellbeing — We have 24 athletic teams for 11 sports, plus club sports, and extensive facilities, including a gym and pavilion, a track, baseball field, soccer and lacrosse fields, and an outdoor swimming pool.

Like our boarding students, Church Farm School day students are assigned a cottage and are always invited to stay for dinner and study hall, and to all weekend and evening events. Many day students choose to live on campus their senior year, giving them a head start on living independently and preparing for college life.

100% of our graduates are accepted to college, and many are recruited by some of the best schools in the nation, including: Brown University, Cornell University, Emory University, Johns Hopkins University, Princeton University, University of Pennsylvania, Vanderbilt University, Yale University, and many more.
 
 
There is so much motivation here, whether it’s seeing the other students working so hard and succeeding, the mentoring from upperclassmen and advisors, or the genuine investment in our kids … expectation of achievement is the norm at CFS and the school has fostered an enthusiasm for academics and desire to succeed in [our son] Van.
