Welcome International Students and Families!

I am excited that you are here to learn more about attending Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall School. For over 190 years, CH-CH has been challenging and preparing students from around the world for higher education. Our beautiful campus offers a relaxing home for our students while still being one of the closest private boarding/day schools to the city of Boston. Our boarding program allows students to gain independence while taking part in all the educational and cultural experiences this amazing city has to offer. We have a kind, welcoming community that celebrates diversity, and through our partnership with Harvard University’s Making Caring Common initiative, we have become leaders in creating a nurturing environment for students.

Our international students hone their English language skills through immersion in the dormitories, academic classes, and co-curricular activities, as well as have the opportunity to receive support in our English Language Learner classes if they need it. All students work one-on-one with our talented and sought-after Director of College Counseling to discover and apply to best-fit colleges. Our impressive college matriculation list shows the success that these students find during this process.

This page is full of information for our international students; read through to get a full picture of the incredible opportunities we offer to our students from around the world. If you have any questions, please contact us, we are always here to help. We look forward to hearing from you, and hopefully seeing you on campus soon!

Head of School
At CH-CH, we offer a variety of Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors classes. We are empowering 21st century learners by providing opportunities beyond the classroom. Through Independent Studies with CH-CH faculty, college courses at local universities, and online classes, students are able to challenge themselves in areas that interest them.  Examples include Calculus III, Programming, International Economics and Agriculture, AP Chemistry and Physics, AP Italian, Documentary Filmmaking, Digital Art and Animation, and Dance.

Tom Ho. ‘17 (Vietnam)

Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall was like a big family and will always have a special place in my heart. It prepared me for college, and it felt like home.
CH-CH offers English Language Learner (ELL) classes to help international students develop their English skills necessary to find success in school and beyond. International students will take all of their courses with other English native speakers, along with the ELL classes. These classes provide assistance with active reading, research techniques, written expression, vocabulary building, and class discussion strategies.  We will assess each student to determine if a student needs these classes and the level of support. 

Parent of Alumni ‘19 (China)

During my son’s four years of study at CH-CH, he received abundant care and attention from his teachers and faculty members. He really enjoyed a happy and healthy academic and social life while being far away from our family. It’s been his honor to spend his four years at a great place like CH-CH.
Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall School has the unique advantage of having a quiet, scenic, 42-acre campus, while also being one of the closest New England boarding schools to the center of Boston. We are just minutes away from all that the city of Boston has to offer, from historic sites, events, colleges and universities, world-class restaurants, museums, and cultural experiences. Through our Embracing Boston Program, CH-CH boarding students experience all the fun and learning opportunities that the city of Boston has to offer.
