The Crowden School: Rolling Admissions are Open for 2024-2025!

K-12 Schools with Immediate Openings
School-Aged, Preteens, Teens, Adults

When we put music in the center of an inspiring, whole-child education, we empower curious, creative and confident young learners.

The Crowden School is currently accepting 2024-2025 applications for third and fourth grade, with limited spaces available in grades 5–8.

Our project-based academics challenge students to develop critical thinking skills, curiosity, self-confidence, and a lifelong love of learning. Small class sizes and close student-teacher interactions give each student the opportunity to be recognized and appreciated as a unique individual, and to develop confidence in themselves and their abilities. 

Established in 1983 and still the only school of its kind in the country, Crowden’s unique chamber music inspired curriculum features intellectually engaging academics side by side with its esteemed music program. Socratic questioning and discussion inspire curiosity about the world, while interdisciplinary projects engage students in active problem-solving, tap into their creativity, and build independence. This approach cultivates an environment of empathy and trust, and fosters close bonds of friendship and respect among students.
