Why all-girls, why boarding, why Chatham Hall?
At Chatham Hall you can be you. No pressures. No put-ons.
Sure, you can see boys on weekends or talk on the phone if you want. But it will be on your terms. You’ll be part of a community of girls who enjoy living and learning together. But don’t take our word for it; read the student quotes below. They tell it like it is.
- "I always feel comfortable asking questions in class and getting help outside of the classroom. I think the reason I feel so comfortable is because we're at an all-girls school. You don't have to worry about what you look like in the morning, or if you say something "off the wall" or incorrect because you're not trying to impress some boy." - Maria '06, Texas
- "Boarding school is a great place to have a fresh new start. The small class sizes and living on dorm make it a great place to make friends that last you a lifetime. Since so many of the teachers live on campus, a boarding school like Chatham feels like a great big family or neighborhood."
- Lea '07, Kentucky
- "At first I thought it would be terrible without guys, but I like it. We still see guys at mixers and talk to them on the phone and such, but they aren't distracting us in class and preventing us from studying." - Sarah '09, Virginia.
- "Boarding school is so special because you are an individual. You are not known as so and so's child or someone's little sister. You are known by just you."
- Axi '09, Virginia
- "Most people think that living in an all-girls boarding school might not allow us to develop proper feelings. But we get to see boys and it's not once in a blue moon, it's generally over the weekends. Apart from this, living in a place where females are majority creates a sense of security deep within us."
- Nawrin '07, Bangladesh
