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

This campaign supports three essential components of the Commonwealth experience:

The Power of Place

Significant renovations to our beloved Boston brownstones.

The Power of Opportunity

Essential financial aid and student scholarships

The Power of a Teacher

Competitive compensation and grants for faculty development

Thanks to the generosity of our community, we have raised $12,100,000 from more than 300 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."
