The Crefeld School graduates self-aware, empathetic, lifelong learners, who possess an appreciation for diverse perspectives, their role in society, and their ability to act as agents of change.

Societal Vision

The Crefeld School envisions a world in which all students understand their inherent worth as individuals and their ability and obligation to powerfully impact society. 


Trust-based system Everyone at Crefeld is a member of the community. As members of this community, trust is essential to our functioning in everything we do.

Commitment to social justice We believe it is our responsibility to do what we can to eliminate bias based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, political affiliation, national origin, or disability.

Diversity, equity and inclusion Crefeld is committed to building a culture that respects and embraces diversity, inclusion, and equity, believing that these values are critical for advancing knowledge, sparking innovation, and creating sustainable communities.

Strength-based approach At Crefeld, we celebrate what students do well every day and help develop compensation strategies for areas of growth.

Embrace individuality Through the advisory system, each student is recognized as an individual and has a well-supported designated advocate monitoring their education at Crefeld.
