Commonwealth encourages students to follow their interests down unexplored paths. With the advice and support of advisors and other teachers, students find new opportunities to broaden their educations and put what they learn to use.
- Project Week takes 9th, 10th, and 11th graders into week-long immersions in the arts, business, academia, politics, and more. Seniors have a three-week Senior Project. Students work with their faculty advisors to identify a topic, place, or person for the project, and students take the lead on contacting mentors and making arrangements. Once the week is over, each student writes a brief report on the experience. Many students use a faculty-led trip or student exchange as a project.

- Community Service is an important element of the school's mission, and all students complete 70 hours of service by the beginning of 11th grade.
