THE JOY OF LEARNING AT CRESTWELL SCHOOL
At Crestwell School, our students find joy and purpose in learning by doing. Guided by our distinctive approach to whole child education, Crestwell faculty immerse students in intellectually rigorous, hands-on learning environments that spark character development, individual passions, and social awareness. By design, we offer students the experiences that deepen their cognitive, emotional, and social skills while inspiring an enduring enthusiasm for learning.
Our students learn to ask good questions and navigate abundant information, to develop imaginative ideas and innovative alternatives, and to forge consensus and connection within diverse groups. Crestwell students feel known, seen, and safe to take considered risks, learn from challenges, and carefully think through important questions about the world around them. As a result, they develop the cheerful resilience to thrive—in their time with us, in college and career, and in life itself.
Our primary approach is to support students toward becoming critical thinkers, creative agents, effective communicators, and purposeful collaborators. Throughout a typical week, students engage in a wide variety of classes and learning experiences that help them cultivate a strong, well-rounded foundational base. Our teachers strive to nurture and model a growth mindset and help students to embrace multiple perspectives and grow as empathetic leaders.
