The Church Farm School in Exton is celebrating its centennial with the theme “A Seat at the Table,” writes J.F. Pirro for Main Line Today.

The all-boys boarding school was founded in 1918 by Rev. Dr. Charles Wesley Shreiner to educate “boys of promise who have the opportunity to lead lives of impact.”

The school has evolved over the years, along with the list of colleges its graduates attend. For CFS’s Class of 2017, this includes Johns Hopkins, Brown, Yale, and other elite institutions.

The theme was chosen by Rev. Edmund K. “Ned” Sherrill II, who has led the school for nine years.

“We’re planting seeds, and we know that these kids have every opportunity to contribute a meaningful application of their talent,” he said.
