The Chapin C:

It's Who We Are!

Character   Curriculum    Community


We all dream that our children will be successful in their careers, whatever that means for their individual passions. In our hearts, we know that means so little unless they are successful as citizens, as partners, as parents, as siblings, as friends. The dream we all share is that the world is full of good people. At Chapin School Princeton, we help that dream come true, one child at a time.

The Five Virtues


This morning, at Chapin’s first All School Meeting of the year, Mrs. Pasteris spoke about the importance of one of Chapin’s Five Virtues, Respect. This virtue can mean many things and Chapin students gave examples, such as holding the door for others and helping people down the stairs. She also brought to the stage our school leaders, Chapin’s 8th Graders (Class of 2020). They are the leaders of Chapin and the respect they show themselves and the community is a model for the younger students.
