Lower School

    • Lower School students working in the classroom
Welcome to Crescent's Lower School, where character education is part of everything we do with our young Boys of Promise.
For our youngest Crescent boys in Grades 3 to 6, the Lower School provides learning experiences and opportunities that guide them on their lifelong journey to becoming Men of Character.

Crescent's core values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Compassion guide the boys in their day-to-day life. The boys are reminded of these values regularly and learn that these words resonate on a larger stage than the classroom, sports field or playground. These values infuse every aspect of our Crescent community.
All of our programs support our boys in reaching their goals and discovering their limitless potential. Our exceptional faculty lead the boys to explore their imagination and their world. Our boys learn by reflecting on their own learning, by investigating, by playing, by being creative and by understanding how building positive and meaningful relationships with friends and adults can enrich their lives.

Every step of the way, our teaching practice is informed by expert research on how boys learn.
Crescent's mission, Men of Character from Boys of Promise, is at the core of everything we do, because “a man of character is principled, wise, resilient and engaged.”

In the Lower School, your son will be embraced by a community that nurtures his unique talents, unlocking the door to learning and engaging him in his character development.
