The best way to learn about Charles River School is by visiting us. We invite you to come see our classrooms, observe our teachers and students working collaboratively, and talk with our students, parents, and staff. You'll experience the vibrant, rich environment of CRS first-hand, and begin to get a sense of what sets us apart from other independent schools.

Located in Dover, approximately 10 minutes from I-95 or Route 9, our 16-acre campus features a Wetlands Laboratory, playing fields, and bright, spacious classrooms surrounding a central playground. Our new middle school building just opened, completing our campus with innovative and flexible spaces for our oldest learners.

Middle School Open House: Thursday, November 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm


This evening event is designed for parents interested in learning about what makes our Middle School program a sought-after experience for 6th-8th graders. A panel of recent graduates will discuss how CRS set them up for success in high school and beyond, and visitors will have an opportunity to visit in the classrooms with our teachers.  Register here.


Tours and Information Sessions

Individual tours and parent interviews are available beginning in mid-September. Prospective parents will have the opportunity to tour our campus, meet classroom teachers, and sit down with a member of our Admissions team to ask questions and tell us more about your child. Please contact Lane Dussault, Assistant Director of Admissions, at 508-785-8281 to arrange a tour or click on the Request Information button and we will reach out to you.

We also offer Admissions Information Sessions and Classroom Observations on select Fridays throughout the fall. These are a great way for parents to learn about the school in an informal setting.  You will hear briefly about what makes CRS unique among area independent schools, be given a campus tour, and have the opportunity to observe in the classrooms.
