Message From the Headmaster
At Chase Collegiate School, we believe that strong students deserve a worthy challenge. We boast a motivated and passionate student body that is challenged not only by the School's rigorous academic programs but by dedicated members of the faculty.
Chase has a tradition of small numbers in the classroom and of teachers who go the extra mile for their students. We have been fortunate throughout the years to have an extraordinary faculty who are not only gifted and talented in their subject areas, but are also generous, compassionate, and principled human beings. They foster a collaborative, vibrant learning environment, and help students reach their full potential.
We seek to develop the whole student at Chase, offering academic rigor, extracurricular enrichment, and successful and varied interscholastic athletics. We encourage our students to step out of their comfort zone, to explore new options available to them, and to take the initiative to pursue their goals.
Our strength as a Pre-K3-Grade 12 school allows us to watch as children develop into responsible, mature young adults in their time here. In our Lower School, children grow in an environment that focuses on the needs of the whole child, facilitates self-discovery, and develops social skills and academic self-confidence to insure a lifelong love of learning. As they enter our Middle School, students begin to take more responsibility for their studies, and are taught to organize, synthesize, and integrate information while developing a strong sense of personal awareness. Once they reach our Upper School, students are guided to fuller maturity as people who thrive on learning new skills. Graduates tell us they have made a seamless transition to the rigors of college because of the outstanding preparation received here.
Chase will provide countless opportunities for your child to learn, explore, and grow in a small, collaborative environment. I encourage you to come to campus and see this for yourself.
