Campus Life

Living Well

Living Well at Chatham Hall is designed to remind you of the multi-dimensional aspects of your life and the holistic nature of overall health.
Living Well is designed to align with our belief and commitment that health, wellness, and balance should be at the center of all we do. This mindset allows us to infuse our nine dimensions of wellness into campus life to develop exciting opportunities in curricula and academic programs, initiatives for afternoon activities, priority points for Advisory chats and themes for our grade-level programs. Living Well grows alongside you as it assists you in learning more about yourself, your communities, and ultimately your world.
