Overview

CFS is a boarding and day school for talented boys in grades nine through twelve. CFS offers a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum in an intimate setting, with a total enrollment of less than 200 and an average class size of just ten students. The curriculum is designed to prepare our students to gain entrance to – and succeed at – the finest colleges and universities. Our curriculum is technology-infused, with each student receiving his own laptop and with internet access in every classroom and dorm room. Instruction is led by a seasoned faculty with an average tenure of more than 15 years and of whom 70% hold advanced degrees; most live within five minutes of campus. Education at CFS, however, is not limited to the traditional classroom. Students learn equally important lessons on our athletic fields, competing in 11 interscholastic sports, and in our music program, with advanced offerings in choir and music history and theory. Students can explore their creative side in the expansive art studio, with classes in a variety of media including clay, graphic design, and printmaking. Hobbies become passions, and perhaps careers, in nearly 20 extra-curricular clubs and activities, ranging from chess, math, and digital photography, to poetry, a literary magazine, and the student newspaper. The vital importance of character, caring, and giving back to the community is stressed through a community service program. Our inclusive chapel program allows each student to explore the spiritual elements in his life.
