Message from Head of School

Church Farm School exists to provide real and meaningful opportunity to motivated, hard-working boys from many places in our region and around the world, especially those who desire an excellent education.
Since 1918, this work has been made possible through the support of a wonderful philanthropic community choosing to provide uncommon educational access to those students who would not typically enjoy such a life-changing experience.

Our tagline, Inspiring Boys – Fulfilling Dreams, speaks of our desire to find the most inspirational boys from all races, creeds, cultures and economic circumstances and, in turn, inspire them to make their dreams a reality through a rigorous academic curriculum, engaging campus life, highly competitive athletic program and service to the greater community. We seek to prepare each boy in mind, body and spirit for life in some of the country’s best colleges and universities with most receiving significant scholarships, the kind we provide at CFS.

If you are ready to commit yourself to your future, to reaching for and fulfilling your educational dreams—ones that will lead you to a bright career and responsible citizenship—we want you to contact our admission office for an interview and campus visit. There is nothing like being on campus to experience the rich and unique diversity of our entire community and the wonders that are experienced in our daily work.

And to all who are visiting this site, whether a prospective or current student and family member, alumnus or friend, we trust you will find well reflected in all that is presented and communicated through these images both the information you are seeking and an enduring dedication to our core values: integrity, responsibility, respect and brotherhood.

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions. We look forward to expanding the dialogue.

With best wishes,

The Reverend Edmund K. "Ned" Sherrill II
Head of School
