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.
Chapin School Princeton seeks to instill respect, responsibility, honesty, kindness, and perseverance in its students as it fully prepares them--academically and personally-- for secondary school.
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.
Chapin's Summer Communications Hub is the place to find all of the guides, lists, forms and other information you need over the summer.
