Chapin is a member of Interschool, a non-profit, tax-exempt consortium of eight Manhattan independent schools—Brearley, Browning, Chapin, Collegiate, Dalton, Nightingale-Bamford, Spence and Trinity—known for their high academic standards, outstanding teaching and traditions of quality. The purpose of Interschool is to share the special resources and talents of each of the schools with the other schools in the consortium, thereby supplementing what each school can do on its own. Interschool runs collaborative curricular and extracurricular programs that serve students, teachers, administrators, trustees and parents and link the schools to the great New York City community. The eight Heads of School compose the Board of Directors.
