Our Program: Elementary Focused

Why elementary-only? At CHS, we take seriously the responsibility of educating the next generation. By giving young children permission to both embrace childhood joy and strive for academic excellence, we help them build a strong sense of self at an early age.

A Day in the Life: Embracing Childhood

Learning is fun, purposeful, and different every day at CHS. Within our joyful Early Childhood, encouraging Lower School, and engaged Upper School, students question, take risks, and think critically as they prepare to excel in their educational journeys.
