Church Farm School Graduates 33

On Saturday, May 28, 33 Church Farm School seniors – Bibles and diplomas in hand – bade farewell to the school where most of them have resided for the past four years. The graduates will go on to pursue their dreams across the nation – from Claremont McKenna in California to the University of Miami in Florida – plus eight other states in between. A few students will continue the brotherhood after CFS: three students are attending the Rochester Institute of Technology, while Haverford College, Drexel University, Skidmore College and Lehigh University will each gain two CFS graduates. Other esteemed universities that will matriculate Griffins this fall include Columbia, Swarthmore, Northeastern, Dartmouth and Vanderbilt, and Josh Han ’22 will apply to schools in his native South Korea when their admissions season opens this winter. Collectively, the school’s 33 graduates received nearly $4M in financial aid, with many receiving full or nearly full rides to college. Photos from the day can be found here. 

The Class of 2022 entered as bright-eyed boys eager to expand their worldviews in a small, diverse boarding school environment, and are leaving as mature young men possessing the six characteristics the school endeavors to create in each of our scholars:
  • Curious and Passionate Learners
  • Compelling Communicators
  • Healthy in Mind, Body and Spirit
  • Persistent in the Pursuit of Excellence
  • Ethical Agents for the Common Good
  • Committed to Global Responsibility
Says Temidayo Bambe of Darby, PA, “I chose CFS because of its authenticity and fundamental core values. The opportunities and lessons at CFS allowed me to work alongside my brothers to pursue our dreams and fulfill our goals. From the students and teachers to the inspirational alumni, the uplifting camaraderie makes the Church Farm experience remarkable.” ‘Temi,’ as he is known, heads to Amherst next year, where he will pursue a degree in medicine. During his time at CFS, Temi’s talents have shone brightly as a member of Student Congress, the Honor Council, the Multicultural Club, the Student Ambassador Program, the Admission Ambassador Program and as a varsity wrestler.
