CRS graduates have the self-confidence and self-knowledge to excel academically and personally in their chosen secondary schools and beyond.

We prepare students for a wide variety of schools after they graduate from CRS. The majority of our high school-aged graduates (68%) are enrolled in independent day schools. Students also matriculate at boarding schools (12%) and their local public high schools (20%) in towns such as Dover-Sherborn, Wellesley, Natick, and Needham.

Ella's Charles River School Point of View

CRS taught me a lot about collaboration. I’ve always been someone who enjoys working with other people and listening to what they have to say. At CRS, I thrived in that mindset.

CRS graduates make their mark in the world in fields as diverse as they are. From academics to entrepreneurs, scientists to artists, business leaders to authors, a common refrain from our alumni is that Charles River School set them on the path toward their chosen profession by nurturing their interests, shaping their passions, and providing them with real-world skills. Our bonds with our graduates are vital and help shape our strong sense of community.
