We have the best community service, global programs and outdoor education programs I’ve ever seen. Chadwick pushes students to connect with the wider world. Students don’t see the rest of the world just in the narrow terms of charity and tourism. They see the rest of the world as a place they live and a place they’re part of.
Diverse Dynamic Enriching
Beyond The Classroom
Life at Chadwick is a multifaceted experience that enriches students beyond academics. An impressive array of co-curricular activities develop character, leadership skills and self-confidence that last a lifetime.
In any given year, almost 90 percent of our Upper School students play on at least one interscholastic team, learning to compete with character and perseverance. Chadwick’s Upper School athletic teams consistently succeed at all levels, winning numerous championship titles and producing some of the nation’s most elite athletes. But where our success matters most is in cultivating students’ capacity to push past their limits.
Chadwick’s nationally accredited Outdoor Ed Program exemplifies personal and environmental leadership. Each year, Upper School students make progressive strides in experiential learning out in the wilderness. These once-in-a-lifetime, character-building experiences challenge their physical and emotional capabilities, elevating their sense of accomplishment as they approach graduation. As they explore the great outdoors, they discover themselves.
Like Outdoor Education, community service has been at the heart of our school’s educational vision from the very beginning. Through an array of dedicated activities, Upper School students gain priceless perspective on the quality of their own lives and their ability to positively impact that of others.
As an Upper School student, you’ll explore foreign concepts, cultures and experiences that widen your view of the world. From our sister school in Songdo, South Korea, and programs like the Model United Nations and Round Square, to immersive international cultural exchanges, Upper School students get priceless opportunities to travel, study, participate and connect with people and places around the globe.
Chadwick’s acclaimed arts programs set the perfect stage to find your self-expression. Our dynamic roster of visual and performing arts opportunities include studio art, ceramics, photography, sculpture, Chadwick Dance Company, Chadwick Cheer, Chorus, Chamber Music, Orchestra and ChImps — a unique improv program.
