Why an All-Boys Education is a Worthwhile Investment

For many parents, an all-boys high school is the logical choice for their son’s education.
All-boys schools offer a tailored approach that acknowledges and addresses the specific needs of young men without the distractions of a co-ed environment. The presence of strong mentors who understand the distinct challenges boys face cultivates an environment where boys are likely to step up. 
As a result, many families searching for the right private school in Exton, PA, and surrounding areas discover that Church Farm School is a worthwhile investment in their son’s future. Private high schools can instill important values such as CFS’ core values of respect, responsibility, integrity and brotherhood that boys will take with them for the rest of their lives.

Intentional mentorship and character development

will care as much about developing strong young men as they do about academic standing.
At CFS, the faculty and staff exemplify the core values of respect, integrity, responsibility and brotherhood. All of these values will play a huge role in shaping young men who will grow up to be strong husbands, fathers and leaders in their communities. 
Mentorship plays a key role in encouraging our students toward leadership and service to others. Students are mentored and supported by teachers, coaches, cottage families, college counselors, school alumni, service project leaders and fellow students.

Full access to the Church Farm School experience 

All-boys high schools provide numerous opportunities that go above and beyond traditional high school learning environments. 

In addition to year-round opportunities in the arts and athletics, your investment as a day student gives your son full access to the CFS experience. 

Day students enjoy three meals a day and many afterschool and weekend activities that have included trips to Philadelphia, New York and Washington, D.C. CFS students enjoy theater productions, school dances, museums, or pro sporting events.

Your son will find plenty of ways to get involved.

Tuition that reflects each family’s financial situation

CFS is countercultural to most boarding and day schools. Our mission is to make a college prep education financially accessible to a diverse group of young men with academic ability and good character. For this reason, we determine tuition based on the ability to pay.
