Founded under the auspices of the Episcopal Church, Charles Wright Academy has always striven to educate the whole child. Charles Wright welcomes diversity in religious and spiritual beliefs by accepting students of any faith or none and respects that each person’s spiritual journey is unique and is shaped by many forces. The school inspires students’ spiritual growth by exposing them to diverse sources of wisdom from the world’s great religious traditions. Led by the Chaplain, Charles Wright seeks to deepen students’ understanding of world faiths and to celebrate common values of faith, respect, compassion and courage. Charles Wright promotes a strong commitment of service to the community. We encourage students to believe they can make a difference as responsible global citizens. – CWA spirituality statement adopted by the Board of Trustees, May 2007
CWA’s chaplain helps students explore their spirituality through scholarship, service and self-knowledge.

In the Middle School, Rev. Moffitt leads meaningful community gatherings.
In the Upper School, he teaches freshman seminar classes on world religions and an advanced course in comparative religions. He also helps students organize community service projects.
