For more than 155 years, CHS has been committed to preparing intellectually skilled, thoughtful and confident learners and leaders. This commitment embodies the very best of who we are as a community and can be traced back to the School’s earliest days. In order to maintain a high level of excellence, we rely on tuition and auxiliary programs to provide CHS with the necessary funds to support the priorities of the School. 

Though tuition and auxiliary programs cover a majority of our operating expenses it doesn’t cover all the benefits all of our students receive. On average there is a $4,500 gap between tuition and the actual cost of a CHS education. This is why independent schools like CHS need endowments and alternate revenue sources such as summer camp, and fundraising. 

Our goal is to reduce tuition dependency by growing both the Annual Fund and the Endowment to enable a steady stream of working capital.
