When Charles Merrill founded Commonwealth, he sought to provide a first-rate education in the heart of Boston, and to create opportunity for students from under-represented communities. 

This 12.5 million dollar campaign will ensure that the Commonwealth experience carries forward Mr. Merrill's vision for years to come.


Campaign Progress-to-Date

Thanks to the generosity of our community, we have raised $10,100,000 from more than 200 alumni/ae, parents, and friends.

"The best brains of 1963 seem to give themselves to problems of the very fast or very big or very small. The job of a school like ours is to hold a scale of the human."
