Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall School Photo #2 - Located on a 40-acre, beautiful suburban campus,just ten miles from Boston. The Museum of Fine Arts, Fenway Park, Copley Square, Museum of Science, and Faneuil Hall are just a short train ride away.
Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall School Photo #3 - At CH-CH, our innovative approach affects not just what individual teachers do. It's also how we've structured our class day. Each academic class meets three times a week, and the class periods are 75 minutes long. This 'Extended Learning Time' allows teachers to truly get to know their students.
Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall School Photo #4 - We have built our educational approach on the fundamental belief that students learn in different ways and have different strengths in demonstrating what they have learned. In a CH-CH classroom, you might find students playing a ball-throwing vocabulary game, giving students a way to listen, touch, and see the words.
Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall School Photo #5 - The arts enrich the CH-CH experience both as academic courses and as co-curricular activities. In the visual and performing arts, courses are offered in photography, film, ceramics, vocal and instrumental music, etc. The most dedicated artists can pursue our concentrated program to earn a Certificate of Distinction in Visual Art or take AP Studio Art.
Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall School Photo #6 - Our students pursue interests, bond with classmates, contribute to the community, and have fun with a variety of activities during the class day, which includes a meeting period for student clubs. Clubs include Dance, Student Government, Amnesty International, International Student Organization, Students of Color Alliance, and the Gay/Straight Alliance.
Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall School Photo #7 - Students have several opportunities to participate in mandatory afternoon activities. We offer traditional interscholastic sports, as well as fitness training and less traditional options such as Frisbee and rock climbing. Seasoned athletes as well as those trying a sport for the first time are always welcomed onto our teams. Other activities may include newspaper, drama, tech crew, and various internships.
Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall School Photo #8 - Weekends offer opportunities for recreation and relaxation on campus, such as watching a movie with friends, playing a pick-up game of basketball in the gym, or having a cookout. Major school events include Diversity Day and Winter Carnival. Off-campus activities include going to museums and attractions in Boston (10 miles away), shopping, or out to dinner.
Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall School Photo #9 - Throughout the college application process, the CH-CH college counselors provide our students with expert advice and special opportunities. Among other things, the office holds a week-long summer boot camp (during which incoming seniors can complete their applications), offers guidance sessions on Monday nights, and facilitates small gatherings in which our students can forge personal connections with various colleges and universities.
- At Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall, we`re focused on one thing, teaching the way students learn. Our teachers inspire, engage, and support students in their challenging classes. Although the best description comes from our passionate alumni who use the same word again and again to describe their CH-CH experience... transformational. 100% of our students are accepted into college, with over 85% getting into one of their top choice schools
- An average class size of ten allows us to truly know our students.

The Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall School has been a fabulous experience for our son in every way. Our son was a terrific student until high school, when some medical issues complicated his experience in the public school. He transferred to Chapel Hill in tenth grade and immediately began to flourish. The teachers are superb and provide weekly reports so that parents can remain informed about what is happening with their kids without having to micromanage the learning experience. The administration seems compassionate and particularly aware of the students' states of mind. The small class sizes are perfect for generating excitement about learning. The social vibe at the school seems very accepting and congenial, perhaps in part, because the school is too small to foster diverse cliques. The outside activities are terrific and help to generate a strong sense of community. Our other child attended Cambridge School of Weston, and although we also appreciated CSW's many attributes, we have been significantly more impressed with Chapel Hill.
