Welcome to Charles Wright Academy

We are delighted that you are considering CWA for your child’s future.

Since 1957, our deeply committed faculty have inspired our students every day with extraordinary learning experiences. We are a Preschool to Grade 12 community that is co-educational, college prep and dedicated to values of integrity, respect, compassion, perseverance, and excellence.

As the school process unfolds, we will be right here  – informing, updating and supporting you all the way. The first step is to complete your inquiry in Veracross – our admissions portal. Once you are in our system, you will discover opportunities for Visit Days, family tours and other events. Engage in your exploration!

At CWA, our admissions process builds a personal relationship as we learn about you and you explore how our program might be a fit. We invite you to visit our beautiful 107-acre campus, meet our warm and inclusive community members and take some time to imagine your journey here at CWA.
