School Life

What Makes Chapin Such a Special Place?

It is all about relationships. Relationships between teachers and their students, teachers and families and between students themselves. Our campus is always brimming with much-loved traditions, classroom activities, celebrations, and spontaneous learning moments. From school events to Parents' Association events, we are all about enabling our students, parents and teachers to build lasting and meaningful friendships

Community is the Heart of Chapin School Princeton

The best private schools are much more than just academics. Chapin School Princeton's community is best described as a neighborhood where everyone looks after each other. It is here where bonds of friendship between children, adults, and families extend across cultures and social boundaries in creating a warm and caring environment rarely found in today's society.

We come together often for school events, like the PA Back-to-School Family Barbeque and Ice Cream Bingo, dress up for Halloween and dinner auctions, and cheer our young athletes to victory. We care deeply about the world around make lunches for the Loaves & Fishes Soup Kitchen and reach out to help when world and local disasters occur.  

We care about how we treat each other and work hard to instill in our students our five virtues of respect, responsibility, honesty, kindness, and perseverance. While the depth of our academic program is at our core, at the heart of the Chapin experience are our relationships.
