Our Teachers

CH-CH teachers impact their students’ lives through the energy, care, and dedication that they bring to the classroom every day. Our teachers know their students, and they know how to foster a love of learning because they love learning themselves.
Our faculty are highly dedicated to professional development, which informs and inspires their work in the classroom. When our teachers build a lesson plan, they are focused on more than getting information across. CH-CH teachers make lessons come to life. By creating engaging entry points, partnering with other classes, and making real-world connections to the material, our teachers craft learning experiences that our students are excited about.

Our teachers and students have the rewarding opportunity to collaborate daily outside of the classroom, whether it’s on the athletic field, on stage, or in the residential program. These partnerships allow our students and educators to become better versions of themselves and form the fabric of our tight-knit community.
