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.

Individual tours are available throughout the week and can be arranged by calling the Admissions Office at 508-785-8281. The initial visit generally lasts approximately an hour and a half and will include meetings with the Director of Admissions and Head of School as well as a tour of the campus.

Fall Open Houses

Tours and Information Sessions

Individual tours are available beginning the week of September 17. Prospective parents will be matched with a parent tour guide or admissions staff member to visit classrooms and explore our campus. You will also have the opportunity to sit down with a member of our Admissions team to ask questions and tell us more about your child. Please contact the Admissions Office to arrange a tour (508-785-8281) or click on the Request Information button and we will reach out to you.

We also offer Admissions Information Session on select Fridays throughout the fall. This is 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.
