Boarding school is a choice. It’s a balance between educating your children in your hometown environment or recognizing that perhaps a different environment of education is better for them.
Chatham Hall’s focus on the whole girl – intellectual, moral, athletic, and spiritual – creates an environment in which our daughter, Ella, can flourish.
We strongly believe that the boarding school environment fosters life-long skills in so many ways. We love the fact that Chatham Hall is intensely focused on developing all aspects of Ella’s growth, thereby ‘giving back’ to us as parents time to spend with Ella focused on developing our relationship and having fun together, all the time knowing we have the anchor of Chatham Hall.
Chatham Hall’s smaller size, diversity, warm and caring environment, and global focus really piqued our interest about the School. The spirit of the community, combined with strong academics and successful alumnae stories, ultimately led to us enroll Ella.
Ella has always done well turning to other adult role models for academic development. She loves the interaction with her peers, faculty, and administrators at school. While we miss the ease of participating in school events locally, we know that the boarding school experience is the right fit and dynamic for Ella.
We are so appreciative of the vigor and strength that the Chatham Hall team delivers every day. They are shaping our nation’s future leaders. We are so blessed that Ella and we are part of that journey and the Chatham Hall family. All of our daughters are thriving and growing in an incredibly challenging time thanks to the School’s efforts.
