Service Learning
in India and
South Africa

In 2017, spend your spring break with classmates in India’s Golden Triangle, where we will collaborate with local teachers, prepare and serve meals, and work and play alongside student peers in a variety of community settings.

iQuest Program

Want to walk through Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous architectural masterpiece? Study equine nutrition at a veterinary workshop in Oxford? We can take you there. The iQuest program encourages students to extend their curiosity beyond the borders of campus and follow it anywhere in the world it leads.

Spanish & French Immersion

Learn a language and culture from the inside out. Spend the summer living and learning with a host family in our Spanish and French immersion programs.

Foreign Travel Awards

Through the generosity of Frances Hurt, a parent and former trustee, we offer the Hallam Hurt '63 Student and Faculty Foreign Travel Award each year to a Chatham Hall student and her faculty sponsor for foreign study and research. Past recipients have used the Hallam Hurt '63 Student and Faculty Foreign Travel Award to study the organic beef industry in Argentina, music history in the great opera houses of Italy, Russian literary classics in St. Petersburg and Moscow, and many other topics that provide once-in-a-lifetime educational experiences.

See where Chatham Hall has taken past Hallam Hurt '63 Student and Faculty Foreign Travel Award winners on our application page, and start dreaming about where it can take you.

Student Diplomacy Corps

Explore another culture through thematic immersion programs.  The Student Diplomacy Corps summer programs engage dynamic high school students from across the United States and the world in cross-cultural education programs exploring biodiversity, sustainability, anthropology, food and nutrition, art and music and voluntary service.

Challenge yourself on a Student Diplomacy Corps summer program, build friendships with students from around the world, share traditions with a host family, explore art history, help with a community-designed volunteer project, and/or learn about ecological treasures with local experts.
