From The Cambridge School of Weston

A leader among progressive schools, The Cambridge School of Weston (CSW) has been at the forefront of educational innovation since 1886. Here, creative, motivated students embrace challenging work and address challenging questions, with curiosity and courage. Inspired by the diverse perspectives and high expectations of our justice-minded community, they find and develop what is extraordinary about themselves and in the world around them.

At CSW, we are constantly challenging the norms of what a high school education looks like, and as a student here, you can expect to do the same. We don’t follow the status quo — we set it, shaping our academic model in response to the ever-changing needs of the next generation.

Our students regularly explore the histories of non-western cultures or minority groups; study the origins, causes, and effects of discrimination and prejudice; and examine models of social change with the goal of advancing human rights.

THE MODULE SYSTEM

In place of a traditional semester or trimester model, the CSW calendar year is divided into six, six-week modules known as the Mod System. During each mod, students take three blocks of academic classes that meet every day. This setup allows for breadth, depth, and curricular agency you won't find at any other school. With over 250 courses to choose from, no two student schedules are alike!
