Students gain the type of cultural competence needed to be successful adults; our young men bring the world to Church Farm School.

Our teachers reside with their families on or near campus, and participate fully in the life of the school-and the lives of our boys.
  • The school`s 75 exceptional faculty and staff members guide 180 students through a rigorous curriculum that fosters outstanding academic development, with a strong focus on STEM and ethical leadership. Students also experience a full program of athletic, artistic and spiritual activities that create a caring, close community. Our class size averages 10 students, with a student-to-faculty ratio of 5-1.
