Community School of Naples, an independent, PreK-12 college preparatory day school, was launched in 1982 by a group of parents seeking to establish a private school close to home. Recruited by word-of-mouth, the original student body consisted of fewer than 50 students who began K to 5th grade classes in a rented church space. Today, CSN has more than 900 students and a $40 million, 77-acre campus with 21 buildings, including athletics fields and swimming pool. 

Essential elements of the school’s educational program include a comprehensive curriculum focused on academic rigor; opportunities in athletics and arts, both fine and performing; and character development. These elements ensure that each student experiences a challenging education only an independent, college preparatory school can provide.

One hundred percent of CSN graduates attend four year colleges and universities, with many attending our nation’s most selective and highly competitive schools.
