Welcome to Crescent’s Upper School. Our Upper School is small by design: 90 students in each of grades 9 through 12. This allows us to know and understand each student for who he is and to provide the kind of program and support that responds to his individual needs, strengths, goals and passions. I am proud of our talented and dedicated faculty. Each teacher serves as mentor to a small group of students, providing guidance and support throughout their time in the Upper School. Our academic program is rigorous within a highly supportive environment. Our students are prepared not only to gain acceptance to selective university programs, but to thrive beyond admission.
We expect all students to develop the invaluable habit of engagement. With vibrant, wide-ranging co-curricular programs in the arts, athletics, robotics, business studies and politics, as well as a comprehensive outreach program with local, national and international opportunities, we believe that each student can find his passion and become fully immersed in the life of his school and of the broader community. Our goal is that each student discover his best self and find the courage to make it active in service to others.
Our unique structure, with three schools—Lower, Middle and Upper—in one building, provides abundant and meaningful leadership and mentoring opportunities for senior students who take responsibility for many aspects of school life.
In all of these ways: through scholarship, engagement, and leadership, and with the encouragement and support of dedicated teachers, we challenge our students to become Men of Character from Boys of Promise.
