From The Chapin School

Chapin’s rich educational tradition dates back to 1901, when Maria Bowen Chapin founded the School. Our mission is to prepare a diverse and talented community of young women to thrive and lead in a global society through a dedication to academic excellence, personal integrity and community responsibility. Our students are artists, athletes, computer programmers, engineers, musicians and physicists, often at the same time. From Kindergarten to Class 12, they all share a home "under one roof" at 100 East End Avenue, which encourages collaboration and life-long friendships and vibrates with their warmth and energy.
