Center for Integrated Studies

Hargrave’s Center for Integrated Studies, serving grades seven through nine, is a unique learning environment with a singular purpose; to accentuate boys’ strengths and help them to excel academically and socially by providing a robust support system. 

The CIS student is part of a tight-knit community of academic, athletic, and residential staff who are invested in his success and who meet weekly to assess progress and proactively address any number of issues that may arise with young teenage boys. This group works together to help build academic aptitude, nurture self-confidence, and instill a passion for self-improvement.
