Schedule a Campus Tour and Interview
We encourage prospective families to schedule an appointment for a campus tour and interview.  These visits are scheduled Monday-Friday during the academic day, which gives you the opportunity to meet with students and teachers, and see classes in session.  The interview is a requirement of the application process and needs to be completed by the application deadline of February 1.

Open Houses
Join us for one of our fall Open Houses!  This fall, we are hosting open houses on October 21st and November 4th at 1pm (Registration begins at 12:30). In the spring of 2019, we will host an open house on April 28th. These programs offer visiting students a unique, genuine perspective of what it's like to learn and participate in CH-CH's dynamic community, and parents will gain an understanding of how we teach the way students learn through discussions with faculty members, department leaders, and current CH-CH parents. 
The Application

Shadow Days
Shadow days are a great opportunity for students to experience first-hand what our dynamic classroom setting is like.  While shadow days are not an application requirement, we encourage all applicants to spend the academic day here with a current student.  We typically schedule a shadow day after the interview has been complete.  For more information please contact the admissions office.
