Campus Life


Campus life is 24/7 at Chatham Hall, offering students an environment and community that encourages you to try new things, take a few risks, learn from your mistakes, and step into your power.

From our classrooms to our playing fields, the dining hall to the study hall, and on a variety of off campus trips, our students and faculty get to develop relationships that go far beyond those fostered in a typical school setting. By simply seeing each other in a variety of situations our community members get to experience all sides of each other and forge bonds generated by late night discussions, early morning runs, quick trips to shopping centers, or conversations on the athletics or airport shuttle. As a boarding school, our time together is truly nonstop so there’s always a next adventure to be had!

List of 3 items.

  • Advisory

    Every Chatham Hall student has a faculty Advisor who is the primary contact for you and your family. Your Advisor is your advocate and liaison between you and your parents, teachers, and administrators. Advisory groups are often made up of students from different grades and dorms, and present you with an instant family when you arrive on campus. Advisories meet several times each week for meals and check-ins, and take off-campus outings multiple times a year.
  • Student Spaces

    Our students enjoy a variety of spaces to call their own, many located on the lower level of Dabney Hall. This is our student center, home to every essential including the School Store, Snack Bar, Fitness Center, Mail Room, Multifaith Room, Viewing Room, and Student Kitchen. Also on this floor is the Niche, the students commons which is newly redecorated with modern, comfortable furniture, and a popular space for students to hang out in between classes or in the evenings.
  • Fitness Center & Trail

    An important wellness asset, the Fitness Center is open for you whenever you want to get a workout in. In addition to cardio equipment, you can use weights, medicine balls, and more. When you want to get some fresh air, you can head outside to the Fitness Trail, a mile loop through the woods which takes you past our perennially popular Bamboo Forest, or other paths on campus.
