Now in our second century, Crescent School remains a leader in boys’ education. Few schools can boast the strength of community, sense of purpose and clarity of mission that are present here.
Crescent’s mission, Men of Character from Boys of Promise, recognizes the potential in every student and acknowledges their unique abilities. At Crescent School, we embrace a rigorous learning environment driven by a relevant curriculum of study and fostered through relationships with the very best teachers and mentors. We are fundamentally committed to providing care, empowerment, clear boundaries and high expectations, and effective ways for boys to use their time well. In addition, we seek to develop boys’ commitment to learning, positive values, social competencies and personal identity. Our boys thrive because they are known and understood.

Our teachers and staff are part of a long and rich tradition in which energy, enthusiasm and engagement complement the challenges and complexities of boys’ growth and development. They are deeply committed to modelling Crescent’s core values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Compassion through every interaction. As learners, they strive for mastery in their craft and consistently hone their approaches that shape, guide and support boys’ development.

Our expertise in boys’ education is supported by world-class facilities and expressed through a robust academic and co-curricular program, including the arts, athletics, business, outreach and robotics. As well, our broader community of alumni and parents takes great pride in Crescent School and is committed to its continual progress.

At Crescent School, we know that relationships are the keystone of learning – everything we do assures our boys they are valued and valuable.
