At Chatham Hall, we’re always mindful of what we can do to make life a little better for someone else. All of our students are members of the Service League, a longstanding campus tradition. Unlike some schools, we don’t require participation in service activities. Instead, we rely on a true spirit of volunteerism – and the boundless compassion our students possess!

Opportunities for service start right here on campus and extend into the local community and across the globe. There are plentiful chances for every Chatham Hall student to get involved, such as:


  • Building Sheds for Habitat for Humanity
  • Community Garden, Composting, and Recycling initiatives
  • Student Admissions Ambassadors (COEs)
  • Volunteering at Horse Shows and other events
  • Hunter Trials course renovations
  • Charitable craftwork (knitting, sewing, etc.) for causes such as Special Olympics, American Soldiers abroad, children and the elderly, and more
  • Fundraisers for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Japanese Tsunami relief, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund, and World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine

Local Community

Chatham Hall has also established an annual service trip to India. These trips are strong steps by Chatham Hall in our long-term, strategic commitment to global education. This year the group will deepen Chatham Hall's work with community action groups, expand collaborations with schools in India, and strengthen the friendships it has made in the past.
