Admissions

Under one roof.

For over a century, Chapin has been a leader in providing an exceptional education for girls. Academic rigor, personal integrity, and community responsibility are all integral to the Chapin experience. Chapin’s approach to pedagogy and fostering community is imbued with a deep sense of intentionality and purpose.

We believe that an equitable, inclusive, collaborative community provides the strongest environment for learning. Expecting and requiring respect for others is a hallmark of our educational process. As a result, a Chapin student is a joyful and engaged scholar who takes ownership of her education and connects with her peers through a mutual love of learning.

 

There is a true culture of participation in all ways at Chapin. We are a school that inspires innovation and flexible thinking. Our dedicated faculty often remark that the learning is a mutual exchange that goes beyond traditional classroom teaching. Chapin students are passionate learners, charged by new endeavors, who grow to view the world through a broad and cosmopolitan lens.

During their time at Chapin, our students deepen their sense of self and their identities as global citizens. By partnering with others and cultivating compassion, our graduates are active, earnest, responsible young people who go on to thrive and lead in the world beyond Chapin.

Statement on Transgender & Non-Binary Applicants & Current Students

Chapin considers applications from any student who identifies as a girl, and we remain devoted to the education and leadership of girls and young women. Recent updates to our policies focus on support for our students who come to understand that they do not identify as girls after joining the Chapin community. Every student and their family should feel they fully belong at Chapin; no student will be asked to leave because of their gender identity. We recognize that all of our students will develop a deeper sense of self in a number of ways during their Chapin years. We continually teach and encourage our students to use their authentic voices, and to affirm and support each other’s efforts to do so. Our educators, administrators, and trustees are committed to an inclusive community and a successful future for each and every one of our students. Expecting and requiring respect for all remains an essential element of our commitment to diversity.
