Capital Campaign

Join our Circle of Excellence Capital Campaign


Helping children be more.


SCS_CCLogo_FINALSince 1884, the St. Charles School has been caring for thousands of children in the Woburn, Massachusetts area. Now, we are launching a $1 million capital campaign to enhance and continue to offer our unique education to the children in our region for generations to come. We are priced below other area private schools and believe that students and families get more for their money here. We keep our pricing low, deliberately. We want a safe, quality education to be within reach for all families — and that’s why we need your help.


The funds we raise will enable us to grow our facilities so they match the quality of our programs and allow us to be a beacon of hope and opportunity for our students and their families. Join the Circle of Excellence and know that the gifts you give will be put to excellent use.


Won’t you help? Your support is vital.
