Chapin School: Tomorrow's Promise. Today.

Chapin School. Tomorrow’s Promise. Today.

How Does a Chapin Education Benefit Your Child?

Lifelong Learning

We teach to your child’s performance level through academic groupings, using leading edge technology to enhance learning. Graduates are fully prepared to excel in any secondary school and embrace the challenge of change.

A Community

Students learn best in a supportive and encouraging community. Every child is known at Chapin, and relationships are built to last. Family groups, clubs, advisory, homerooms, teams, bands, parent associations and, of course, classes all enrich the Chapin experience for each student, parent, and faculty member.

Strong Character

We believe in the power of character, and we purposefully cultivate the five virtues of respect, responsibility, honesty, kindness, and perseverance. Through a highly diverse, caring, and nurturing environment, Chapin prepares students to meet the future with confidence, skill, determination, and generosity of spirit.

Chapin Mission
Chapin School is dedicated to the belief that lifelong habits of the mind and heart are formed in the elementary and middle school years. The school provides a richly textured education that inspires academic achievement and builds strength of character. Within a diverse, caring and supportive community, we prepare our students to meet the future with skill, confidence, determination and generosity of spirit.

Chapin Philosophy
At Chapin School, we believe that students learn best in a supportive, encouraging and diverse community. The school shares a commitment to each child's academic, emotional, ethical, creative, physical, and social development. In small classes that promote active learning, dedicated faculty create environments where critical thinking, effective communication, creativity, and curiosity flourish. Encountering challenges that lead to success, students develop a positive sense of self. A strong commitment to Chapin's five virtues (respect, responsibility, honesty, kindness and perseverance) fosters an environment for character development that complements our academic programs.
