Charles Wright welcomes girls and boys in preschool through grade 12. Though founded as a boys school in 1957, Charles Wright welcomed the school’s first female students in 1970 and now counts more than 1,000 women among its alumni.
At Charles Wright, we challenge every student to explore and discover his or her gifts, so the characteristics of their success are growth, engagement, finding joy in learning, and the discovery of new interests. We encourage all students to achieve their personal best in mind, body, and spirit. Our program supports this success in developmentally appropriate ways from preschool through grade 12 and culminates in the selection of a best-fit college or university.
We are an independent, non-sectarian, private school. We include students and families from diverse backgrounds and identities: socioeconomic, racial and ethnic, gender and sexuality, religious and non-religious. Our community connects through the shared value of education. Families engage and participate in the life of the school in many different ways, from class volunteering to contributing to the Fund for CWA.
