A beloved alumna once noted, “The world needs more Chatham Hall girls.” So, it is no accident that our strategic plan carries this forward. Empowering Girls to  Better the World is our strategic plan that writes the next chapter in our history. Over the past several months, we have worked diligently to define our future. Using the best and brightest minds connected to our school, coupled with good research, we developed a dynamic and didactic roadmap for the future.
A girls' boarding and day school in southern Virginia, Chatham Hall prepares girls for college and for productive lives. Our innovative academic program offers advanced courses, global study and travel, as well as project-based learning. We foster the intellect and character of each student and, through our Honor Code, live in a community of trust. Grounded in its Episcopal heritage, the school welcomes students of all faiths and backgrounds.
