Academics




By creating a learning environment built specifically for girls, teachers have the flexibility to teach based on your unique understanding. Here, you feel seen and heard, and are an active part of your own learning.

At Chatham Hall, your tight-knit bond with teachers guides your learning and allows you to see the best in yourself, while bringing out the best and igniting the light in others.

  • Dynamic Learning

    A life-inspiring education is the sum of powerful parts. At Chatham Hall, these strengths include our profound commitment to critical basics such as public speaking and exceptional writing. Our faculty members are passionately dedicated to creative methods of teaching.
  • Collaboration & Decision Making

    One of the ways in which girls learn best is through collaboration. At Chatham Hall, you'll collaborate all the time - in and out of class. Why is collaboration so important? When you collaborate, you learn about the decision-making process and how to choose the best idea of all those generated.
  • Question, Imagine, & Wonder

    The broad and deep curriculum one finds at Chatham Hall asks students to think, question, imagine, wonder. Internal motivation and creativity bring about the best type of learning, and Chatham Hall supports your dynamic exploration.
