About The Croft School
The Croft School organization is a young, high-quality, independent school organization. We have opened and operate two growing and acclaimed independent schools in Providence, RI, and Jamaica Plain, MA, respectively. We are opening a third school in the South End neighborhood of Boston in September 2022.
Our schools provide an engaging, innovative, child-centered program to its students and a unique parent-oriented experience to its families, all within a tight-knit, diverse, and joyous environment.
Our school in Providence currently serves Kindergarten - Grade 3 students, and will grow into a Kindergarten - Grade 8 school over time. Our school in Jamaica Plain currently serves Preschool - Grade 1, and will grow into a Preschool - Grade 6 school over time.
The Croft School in the South End will build upon the foundation and success of these two sister schools. The school will open with a Preschool (Age 3) classroom and a Pre-Kindergarten classroom. The school will subsequently grow one grade level at a time until it matures as a Preschool - Grade 6 school. Our lower school campus will be located within the former Stella Restaurant building.
