Welcome from the Head of School
As the Head of Chase Collegiate School, I have the distinct pleasure to tell you about the magic of Chase. When you step onto campus, learning is palpable. Students are happy and ready to learn. Teachers will greet you with an energy that is contagious. Everyone here wants to share why they have chosen to attend or work at Chase.
We have freedom! Our faculty seize opportunities to change, adding to our curriculum as the world – and technology - shifts around us. We can allow kids to develop metacognition and innovate daily. We've added Innovation Days into our calendar so students periodically spend full days practicing design thinking and innovating.
Community is integral to the Chase experience. This gives students the confidence to take risks. Through success and failure, they gain the courage to push past what’s comfortable and grow.
Our college preparatory program is enriched by design thinking curriculum, innovation spaces, athletics, arts and a variety of student initiated clubs. When families choose Chase, they do so with the understanding that Chase is so much more than academic excellence. Families are confident that their child will fit in, be respected, and yet also be challenged to reach their full potential.
To genuinely experience Chase Collegiate School, contact Admissions for a tour. I’m confident that your first experience at Chase won’t be your last. In the meantime, click around our website to see and hear the passion that fills our campus each and every day.
