Welcome to the Chestnut Hill School!  For more than 155 years, our school has been deeply committed to embedding meaning, purpose, and joy into learning – this is the heart of CHS’s philosophy. Our hallmarks are dynamic and innovative educational programs, inspired leadership, a dedicated, experienced faculty team, strong enrollment, and vigorous commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

At The Chestnut Hill School, our mission to educate children is deeply rooted in a commitment to academic excellence, diversity, and community. As leaders in early childhood and elementary education, we believe these three pillars are interconnected and allow a diverse community of intellectually curious, culturally competent, strongly skilled, self-empowered individuals who will not only flourish but also enrich the CHS experience. The result is confident young leaders prepared and ready to engage in the fullest at the next level of their educational journey. 

We are delighted by your interest in our school and are equally excited to learn more about you and your goals for your child’s educational journey. Through our admission process each year, we seek to enroll students and families who will contribute to our vibrant, mutually supportive community where students have the confidence to take risks and be themselves, and where teachers, staff, and parents become invaluable partners in helping children reach their fullest potential.

Come meet our Admission Team!  Elisa and Colleen are always available to answer any questions and personally take you through our admission process. You can call the Admission Office at any time to schedule your tour and interview. If you are interested in receiving instructions for application, you can call us or fill out our online inquiry form.
