In the midst of all of this living and learning, something magical and remarkable happens – the girls’ strengths unfold before them; their powerful, purposeful, remarkable voices speak. And, at Chatham Hall, we get to listen.

Chatham Hall becomes a second home for our students, and that’s no accident.

Lifelong friendships are forged here as students find opportunities to make friends with girls from across the country and around the world. Our residential program encourages girls to take responsibility for their own living and learning- and gives the tools to learn how to thrive. While living away from home can be demanding, Chatham Hall girls gain a sense of responsibility for themselves and for others that is so incredibly valuable.
Our program nurtures girls- providing them the space to become their best selves. And, at the same time, Chatham Hall challenges students to take healthy risks while setting developmentally appropriate limits. Our residence halls are structured with health and safety in the forefront of our minds. Yet, we also know that girls need to connect - and feel connected - if they are going to thrive. We teach them formally (through hall meetings and Link Groups) and informally (hanging out on dorm with friends or baking in a House Faculty member’s apartment) how to live with peers who are older and younger, who come from China, Haiti, and Italy or from New York City and southwest Virginia. We believe that the exchanges that take place after school in the residence halls and on weekends foster genuine relationships. The bonds they make stimulate their learning, enhance their emotional intelligence, and enrich their experience.
