Providing an environment where children become educated global leaders, problem solvers, and life-long learners.
Since 1998, CHA has been dedicated to developing global leaders one child at a time. The founders of the school focused on the development of the whole child — their intellectual, emotional, social, physical, and character development. This remains the aim of CHA today. The school strives to develop intelligent, thoughtful, and caring leaders with educated hearts as well as educated minds. We never lose sight of why we are really here and that is to prepare children for further academic challenges and to guide them to be responsible, compassionate, and active leaders of the world.
The academic program at CHA is notably challenging but sufficiently flexible to meet the individual needs of children with varying degrees of readiness and ability. Although significant attention is given to the academic subjects and the co-curricular programs of Spanish, Music, Art, Technology, Physical Education, and Library, we believe that the growth of the whole child, including his or her attitudes and values, is as important as any particular academic discipline, knowledge, or skill.
"I have been very happy with Chestnut Hill Academy- everything from the core curriculum to specialist classes like Spanish, Technology, Music and Art. My son also loves the PE classes because they are so inclusive. The past six years at CHA have helped develop my son into a very well educated child with a passion for learning, excellent manners and respect for his peers and teachers and has given him a huge advantage going into Middle School. I highly recommend this school for these crucial elementary school years."
The only way to fully understand the magic of CHA is to see us in action. We invite you to schedule a time to come and experience for yourself the school’s unique way of educating student leaders to be knowledgeable, confident, and resourceful learners.
