From Chapin School Princeton

Chapin School welcomes students age three through grade eight who are curious, engaged learners whose families value our belief that lifelong habits of mind and heart are formed in the elementary and middle school years. For eighty-seven years, Chapin School has provided an educational environment that supports inquisitive learning, builds confidence and leadership, and encourages students to explore and blossom through a wide variety of curricular and co-curricular experiences. At Chapin, we dedicate all of our efforts and resources to early childhood, elementary, and middle school learning experiences that are the foundation of future success. This focused approach gives our students advantages by providing more leadership opportunities in developmentally appropriate ways, inspiring them to take academic risks, and develop their sense of community. The Chapin “C’s” become an intrinsic part of each Chapin student through a continual focus on Character, Curriculum and Community.

    Chapin has been such a great experience for both of my children. They have improved so much academically in their time here, and the community--parents and faculty--has been so supportive and caring. You won't find a better school in Princeton!

    We currently have three children attending Chapin, two in lower school and one in upper school. We are ever amazed at Chapin's programs from PreK through upper school. Chapin's reputation has always been impeccable. Our personal experience is above and beyond our expectations. We love that Chapin is devoted to teaching the students to be well rounded. Education is a priority as is being responsible, kind, diverse, honest, a good person, an educated person and able to be comfortable in many situations. Chapin Students are prepared for life and know how to persevere. I am confident my children will excel in whichever high school and college they choose. They will be ready.
    Chapin is a truly excellent school. My kids were prepared for high school academically, and even more so as socially. The character program is real simply a part of the fabric of the school.
