Springside Chestnut Hill Academy’s Pre-K–12 program is informed by what today’s students need to thrive in college and beyond and is supported by nearly 300 combined years of academic leadership in boys’ and girls’ education.
Through a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum grounded in project- and passion-based learning, SCH students build resilience and a sense of agency while gaining an unparalleled intellectual foundation for lifelong learning and growth.
Students who attend SCH experience a robust, state-of-the-art academic program intently focused on preparing them for their future. The SCH experience is designed for those who are willing to be challenged, work hard, cultivate an independent mind, and exercise their creativity and curiosity will find the curriculum engaging and rewarding. At the same time, they will discover a nurturing and stimulating learning environment led by a dedicated, passionate, and highly educated faculty. At SCH, the community created by students and faculty is authentic and strong. It is a community in which each student’s unique gifts and capabilities are respected and valued and given just the right combination of challenge and support to... ensure that each student thrives.
SCH’s educational model is distinguished by single-sex education for the lower grades (Pre-K through 8) followed by a coed Upper School. This unique structure expresses SCH’s belief in the benefits of single-sex academic instruction in the lower and middle grades and recognition of the value of coeducation in a student’s final preparation for college and beyond.
Through this unique structure, SCH is able to offer age-appropriate learning environments for every stage of a child’s social and intellectual development. Faculty in the Lower and Middle Schools are experts in the different ways that boys and girls learn and have designed their curriculum to support these different learning styles. Beginning with the merging of gender cultures in Upper School, students are exposed to an ever-widening array of perspectives and opinions as part of their final preparation for becoming citizens of a global community.
