Brave for Others, Brave for Self

Chapin is an independent day school, grades Kindergarten through Class 12, dedicated to the intellectual and personal growth of young women.

Inspired by acts of bravery, compassion and service demonstrated by Chapin alumnae and students as well as others across the nation in response to the historic, ongoing Black Lives Matter movement and aligned with our commitment to racial justice and equity, Chapin is taking a measurable stand against systemic racism, bias and discrimination
not only within our own walls, but within our broader community as well.
