Living Well at Chatham Hall is designed to remind community members of the multi-dimensional aspects of their lives and the holistic nature of overall health.
This initiative 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 the nine dimensions 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 will grow alongside our students as it assists them in learning more about themselves, their communities, and ultimately their world.
