We are excited to welcome our newest Otters to CRS! Typically at this time of year, we would be encouraging parents of newly accepted students to attend on-campus events in order to get to know our community better. Of course, there is nothing “typical” about this year.
With school closed, parents working from home, and families’ lives upended, our goal of personally connecting with you and extending a heartfelt welcome to Charles River School remains the same. To that end, please join us for one of our opportunities to connect online, and check back on this site soon for updates on how our teachers are continuing to deliver a CRS education through distance learning!

In the CRS classroom (even our virtual ones!), students learn to use both inquiry and creativity to build practical skills while taking responsibility for themselves, their communities, and the future. Now, more than ever, this is the best foundation for learning.

Reach out to Kat Whitten, Director of Admissions, with questions or concerns at kwhitten@charlesriverschool.org or 508-785-8213.

    • Alumni Perspective: We asked Owen Asnis (CRS Class of 2015, Nobles '19, Harvard '23) to reflect on his time as a CRS end-to-ender. Here's what he wanted to share with newly accepted families.
