First Day of School 2019 Was a Huge Success

August 30, 2019

The 154th school year began on the campus of Chase Collegiate School bright and early this morning as students were welcomed into their Lower School classrooms and Middle and Upper School advisories.

In keeping with tradition, the Seniors gathered for a class photo on the South Porch before entering the Opening Day assembly to the sound of the bagpipes and a standing ovation from the large crowd of students, faculty, and families gathered to celebrate the start of a new school year. This year's welcome event was all about the students: Seniors designed a commemorative T-Shirt; students in all three divisions shared the importance of the Chase Honor Code and invited all faculty, staff and students to officially sign the pledge; and, after all our new community members were introduced - we danced!!! The morning was full of excitement, comradery and SMILES FROM ALL! #Go Highlanders!

We anticipate a lot of activities on campus this year and always appreciate Alumni attendance and support!
