Why CHA?

Chestnut Hill Academy offers a wonderful balance of an exceptional academic environment, emphasis on the development of the whole child, and truly exceptional enrichment activities, such as field trips, service-learning programs, musical performances, and leadership opportunities. Our emphasis is on leadership and this year CHA is celebrating its ninth year as a Leader in Me school. During the COVID pandemic, we have been running an extremely successful online program for remote students. You can find out more about REACH (Remote E-Learning at CHA) here. In 2019 we launched the Student Personalized Academic Resource Coordination (SPARC) program to serve CHA students who have special and gifted needs. SPARC provides an inclusive academic setting that enables these students to reach their full potential. You can find out more about SPARC here.    

CHA provides a unique environment where students are appropriately challenged, academically motivated, and encouraged to be global citizens and problem solvers. Through our strong partnership with families, students become part of a community of learning that promotes lifelong learning, respect for each other and the environment, and a commitment to service.

The academic program is rigorous. The exploratory and investigative nature of our curriculum provides a broad scope of academic, social, emotional, and physical challenges to enhance each student’s growth. Our students are presented with a range of experiences across the core academic spectrum, including language arts, mathematics, science, social studies/history, world languages, performing arts, visual arts, physical education, library literacy, and technology. All curricula are reviewed through an ongoing process that assures alignment with and often exceeding state and national standards.

We invite you to visit Chestnut Hill Academy to see how much our school has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a top academic program with a focus on leadership, or you want to become a musician, cultivate your artistic talent, develop your technical skills or show off your dramatic side, Chestnut Hill Academy provides a place where your child’s talents and interests can flourish.
