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 admission 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.

“I really like the teachers a lot. I feel like every time I go to school, they make me want to come back. Their enthusiasm makes it fun to come back to school!”

— Ali, Lower School

“We consider the decision to send our children to Charles Wright the best parenting decision we’ve made and the best and most lasting gift we could ever give them. We see incredible growth and positive academic,  social, and athletic risk-taking in our current Middle Schooler, thanks to the faculty; and, we are pleased we will never look back with regret in not having given our children the best possible education.”

— Bruce, Current Parent

“I’ve been at CWA since the 5th grade, and the teachers at Charles Wright have always made classes fun so you always enjoy the subject you’re learning about.”

— Benjamin, Middle School

“I started at Charles Wright in my junior year of high school, and I found that while it was a unique experience with a rigorous curriculum, there was room to think outside of a linear format in some of the classes. The faculty not only embraced core academia, but also supported the creative talents and outlets for us as students.”

— Diane ‘85, Alumna

“I first decided to come to CWA because of the academics. However, I continue to be a Tarrier not only for the academics, but because everyone at CWA is so kind and always makes school feel like home.”

— Emma, Upper School
