At 150 years old, we are an old school; we are not "old school!" We seize opportunities to change, adding to our curriculum as the world and technology - shifts around us. We`ve integrated innovation and design thinking a structured approach to generating and developing ideas - into our traditional curriculum. Three high and low-tech design labs and scheduled Innovation Days enable students to practice this approach to creating viable solutions to real world problems. Students imagine, explore, fail, iterate and reimagine solutions until they reach their desired outcome.When families choose Chase, they do so with the understanding that Chase is much more than academic excellence, fine and performing arts, athletics and student initiated clubs. Families are confident that their child will fit in, be respected, and be challenged. 
  •  Instilling courage, confidence and compassion in every student.
