Investing in Chapin! Supporting our people and our program.
Chapin: where young learners become leaders through our 5 virtues: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Kindness, and Perseverance. There foundations of leadership are instilled in the classrooms and on the playing fields. Every day we live them, we lead with them, we embrace them for life. Chapin is a community completed invested in the advantages of a PreK through eighth grade environment. With a curriculum designed to inspire high academic achievement and build character, our students are empowered to "make their mark" in the world with confidence and courage.
Independent schools, like Chapin, raise funds in addition to tuition to support the dynamic programs and people that make Chapin...CHAPIN! There are three main ways to contribute to Chapin with the most significant being the Chapin Fund.
The Chapin Fund
Gifts to the Chapin Fund provide extraordinary opportunities for academic achievement. These vital funds fuel Chapin's momentum forward allowing the school to grow stronger and more dynamic every year. Generosity from parents, trustees, faculty & staff, and alumni gives Chapin the ability to launch new initiatives encouraging growth and advancement.
All proceeds raised by the Chapin Auction directly benefit the students by supporting academic programs, extra-curricular activities, and athletics in every grade. The Parents' Association also benefits, which allows the PA to host community events that have become beloved traditions of our school.
The Runathon is a fun-filled community event for our school. Students get sponsors to run, walk, jog, or skip to raise funds for Chapin and Loaves & Fishes, the school's community service project. There are also several fun events such as the Lower School Family Dance, Friday Pizza Night, Upper School Dance, and more!
