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.

While we stand in this particular moment in time, perhaps feeling especially defenseless, the opportunity for conversation and action awaits. So, too, does the opportunity for us to embrace the ethic of care so as to erase the forces of white supremacy, racism, discrimination and privilege that disguise reality. We are ready to face this challenge. Brave for Others, Brave for Self.
