- Chapin School Princeton seeks to instill respect, responsibility, honesty, kindness and perseverance in its students as it fully prepares them, academically and personally, for secondary school.
- We help students prepare to be successful at the most prestigious secondary schools in the area. Class sizes are small, and opportunities for learning abound in Chapin's technology centers, science labs, library, theater, design lab, and athletic facilities.
- At Chapin, students are inspired to excel in their studies while becoming good people. Studies are interwoven with character-building concepts. We prepare students to pursue their dreams while making the world a better place.

- The Lower School introduces students in pre-kindergarten to fourth grade to a wide variety of educational subjects and begins to instill a lifetime love of learning. In our elementary school, students start their learning experience in a supportive environment, with hands-on, integrated technology, and parental involvement. By the time they move on to the Upper School, they've received instruction in language, music, art, mathematics, science, and history and have learned to manage academic responsibility with instructor support.
- The Upper School (Chapin's middle school) helps students in the fifth through eighth grades develop critical thinking and analytical skills. We combine challenging academic work in math, social studies, English, world languages, and science with the emotional support to promote lifelong healthy decision-making. Chapin believes that learning is enhanced by arts, music, and culture. So, students are encouraged to explore their interests in the broad range of co-curricular, character development, art, and technology courses offered at Chapin. Every student in eighth grade at Chapin is also required to take at least one course in service learning.When students graduate from Chapin, they have an academic background and strength of character that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
