Your child’s future is the most meaningful investment
you can make.

We understand that a private education is an investment. It’s the most worthy one you’ll make for your family. At Chadwick, everything we do is designed to ensure that you see a greater return than you ever imagined — a child who thrives for a lifetime. 

The best education is one that constantly adds value and ventures outside of the classroom. That’s why our faculty is focused on preparing students, not just for this year’s tests, but for all of life’s tests. 

Our small class sizes allow students to expand their knowledge and take calculated risks in a safe environment where they are supported by mentoring faculty. As a result, they develop the confidence, perseverance and drive to succeed in the world. 


Imagine your child immersed in a curriculum and culture that encourages curiosity, builds character and sharpens lifelong problem-solving skills.

Tuition and Financial Aid

Chadwick students graduate having learned to leverage their academic passion, positively impact their community and empower themselves and others. As alumni, they go on to great success and fulfillment because they were taught to think, do and lead at Chadwick.

Financial Aid

Our founder, Margaret Chadwick, believed all children deserve an exceptional education, regardless of race, religion or socio-economic status. To make Chadwick accessible to the best and brightest students from all backgrounds, we offer tuition and financial assistance where possible at each grade level. Our Financial Aid program is robust and we’re dedicated to extending opportunities for qualified students.

In addition to the school's financial aid program, Chadwick offers a select number of need-based scholarships through generous donations from the MacFarlane Family and Malone Foundation.
