"As a boys' boarding school, our programs are designed specifically to help young men focus on their development at a time in life when distractions abound. Although numerous opportunities exist for our students to interact with girls from Miss Porter's, Ethel Walker's and other nearby schools, boys are free to live and learn in our structured, supportive environment. In an all-boys context, our students embrace scholastic challenges and compete in the athletic arena while feeling safe exploring the arts, experimenting with poetry, expressing school spirit, and just being themselves."
- We see how they negotiate their way through the different stages of development, and use that insight in engaging them, counseling them, mentoring them and teaching them.
- We teach boys the way they learn best, using specific strategies that motivate young men to learn, and modifying standard approaches to align with their unique needs.
- We encourage them to be competitive - and with the understanding that we are all learning - to discuss, to question, and to challenge.
- We give them the freedom to take risks, try new things and make mistakes.
- We offer them a safe place to build concentration, confidence and character."
The Church Farm School prepares a diverse group of boys with academic ability and good character to lead productive and fulfilling lives by making a college preparatory education financially accessible.
- We seek boys for whom a Church Farm School education represents an extraordinary opportunity.
- We offer opportunities to boys of ability and promise who are working to achieve their full potential.
- We intentionally provide significant financial aid in order to welcome students from a wide range of economic circumstances.
- We embrace our unique ethnic, geographic, and socio-economic diversity.
- We serve boys from a variety of family situations, particularly those with a single parent."
