Like visionary Chadwick School Founder Margaret Chadwick we’re always looking toward the future.
Our commitment to innovation has us constantly considering all the ways we can raise our standards of excellence, enhance our students’ experience and provide a world-class, transformative education. While we continue to strengthen the foundation built over the last 80 years, we also know we must adapt and grow along with the outside world. Attracting the very best faculty and students demands it. It’s in that spirit that we begin the next chapter of learning and leadership on our campus.
The Next Generation of Learning and Leading
Over the next several years, Chadwick will strengthen curricular initiatives designed to prepare our K-12 students to live, serve and lead in an ever-evolving, interconnected and interdependent world.
These exciting and interdisciplinary curricular initiatives will focus on three areas:
- Innovation and Research
- Ethical, Global Leadership
- Community Wellness
These interdisciplinary initiatives will directly advance our longstanding commitment to independent thinking, rigorous academics and hands-on experiential learning. They’ll also build upon our collaborative and integrative nature, bringing students and teachers together to usher Chadwick’s mission into — and beyond — the 21st century.
Center for Innovation and Research
Chadwick is committed to providing cross-disciplinary, cross-divisional and real-world opportunities in innovation, research and STEM fields. Our K-12 integrated approach will align Chadwick’s programs, resources and initiatives internally and beyond our campus. Outreach to colleges and universities, independent research centers and businesses will bring outside leaders to campus and connect Chadwick students with the latest discoveries in key fields.

Center for Ethical, Global Leadership
In the years ahead, we envision ethical global leadership as a key component of daily conversation at Chadwick. The Center for Ethical, Global Leadership will support new programming, send students to leadership conferences and global exchanges, and bring renowned leaders from all backgrounds to campus. In partnership with Chadwick International in Songdo, South Korea, students will become global citizens who learn, serve and lead in tomorrow’s world.
Creating the Future
Center for Community Wellness
Caring for our minds and bodies is key to the overall health, well-being and lifelong success of Chadwick students. The Center for Community Wellness focuses on the social, emotional and physical well-being of our K-12 students, faculty and staff, helping them learn and practice wellness tools, such as mindfulness, self-care and stress management so they’re prepared to lead well-rounded lives.

Chadwick's future promises to be as storied as its past.
