An Exceptional Education for Girls, 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.

Since our founding in 1901, Chapin has been steadfast in its commitment to girls' education, academic excellence, intellectual courage, social responsibility and moral growth. 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, driven, confident, responsible young people who go on to thrive and lead in the world beyond Chapin.
