The Crowden School


Children who love music have a home at The Crowden School.

The Crowden School is unlike any other school in the country, a third-through-eighth-grade day school with chamber music at its heart. Since 1983, Crowden’s ensemble-based curriculum has instilled in our students the collaborative, creative, and critical-thinking skills to succeed in life.

At Crowden, you will find students who are actively engaged with learning, whether they are making music or discussing books, solving equations, or playing soccer.

The cooperative and communications skills our students learn as chamber musicians—and the fun they have in doing it—carries over to all aspects of their lives. Crowden School students are lively, curious, and confident learners. Our alumni are well-rounded leaders, ready to meet the artistic and intellectual challenges of the high school years and beyond.

When you are at Crowden, you are never far from music. We invite you to join us.
