At Chatham Hall, students find our service program to be unrestrictive, authentic, and empowering. We do not record service hours and feel that our girls find ways to help others in the local community and beyond for the sake of wanting to help! The connections between service and spirituality, service and social justice, service and civic responsibility are evident and strong.

How We Serve

Social activism is a way of recognizing and responding to needs of social justice, a way of acting on our concerns for others. We believe that service work is a critical way to build cultural competency. We must prepare our students to be global citizens, good stewards, and culturally literate. Not only does service afford girls opportunities to discover their passions, but service is the means by which they are able to put their concern for others into action. Our altruistic service program is the perfect example of what we mean when we say we empower girls to better the world.



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.
