Chapin remains in an enviable position of strength. Enrollment is over 225 students in prekindergarten through grade eight, a large increase over just a decade ago. Our educational program is comprehensive, age-appropriate and rigorous. Our graduates are well prepared, and they are successful at their secondary schools. Our teachers are highly qualified, committed to Chapin's philosophy, and, like their predecessors of so long ago, have "a dedication and feel for children ... beyond anything one can describe in words."
Chapin School has completed $13.2 million of new and renovated spaces which include:
- A 13,000 s.f. Lower School addition with classrooms, library, technology center and a large commons area
- A 14,000 s.f. Upper School addition with six new classrooms, technology center and learning commons.
These facility improvements significantly enhance our ability to provide a rich and deep educational experience for our students but, Chapin is so much more than its facilities. Chapin remains a warm, caring place where students grow and develop in marvelous ways as strong students and morally grounded people.
