The Crescent Way, Crescent's Strategic Academic Plan, identifies four areas of possibility to which we aspire. One of these — “Our Standing” — envisions Crescent as a leader in educational programs for boys, boys’ research and teacher professional development. As stated in the plan, a research centre "would serve the Crescent community teachers, parents, and the boys themselves — and would be a resource both locally and globally for those interested in understanding and working effectively with boys.”

Crescent's Centre for Boys' Education is the manifestation of our aspiration. It is a centre dedicated to discovering how boys learn best.
