    Message from Head of School: Marc Spera

    Today, I share news of recent legal developments in the matter concerning a former student and the arrest of former faculty member, Marc Spera, about which I have previously written in letters to the community in June and August of 2020. We learned today that Mr. Spera has pleaded guilty to several counts of sexual abuse of a minor and the court has sentenced him to 15-30 years in prison. The betrayal of trust between a teacher and student is clear in this case. We continue to hold sincere and deep empathy for a former CFS student and regret that he suffered while attending our school. Please click headline to view full statement.

  • CFS Completes Capital Campaign Supporting Campus Modernization Project

    In September 2020, the school completed its Campus Modernization Project, which had kicked off with a groundbreaking ceremony in May 2019. On December 31, 2020, the school finished its $6.5M Capital Campaign “For the Boys,” raising almost $6.7M for the project.

    Says CFS Director of Development Jon Knorr, “Exceeding your Capital Campaign goal in any given year is always a great achievement. Exceeding it during a pandemic is nothing short of extraordinary. This is a statement by our donors who truly believe we are preparing young men to lead productive and fulfilling lives. We are particularly grateful to our Board of Directors and our Capital Campaign Taskforce, led by co-chairs John Bellis, Jr. and Richard Gherst.”
