The Chapin School is committed to preparing young women to thrive and lead in an increasingly complex world through the pursuit of academic excellence, personal integrity, and community responsibility.
Chapin graduates are distinguished by their advanced command of the sciences, humanities, social studies and arts, as well as by their strong values, integrity, and sense of their achievement and potential.
The school’s college-preparatory curriculum takes into account the total development of each girl, from her academic progress to her social and emotional health.
Through liberal arts courses, participation in athletics and clubs, exposure to the fine and performing arts, and enriching social activities, a Chapin education challenges the minds of girls and young women while providing the foundation for a lifetime of curiosity, creativity, and intellectual achievement.
Chapin is built on a strong and deeply held, community-wide commitment to academic excellence within a caring environment.
Essential to the achievement of this excellence is a system of collegiality developed by the faculty.
