Where opportunity meets self-discovery
In Chadwick International’s Upper School, opportunities are everywhere. By engaging in hands-on academic and artistic endeavors from global humanitarianism to outdoor education adventures, Upper School students develop the confidence, character and capability to change the world.
As graduation approaches, each day at Chadwick prepares students for the next phase of life. They engage in a wide range of activities that not only enhance their academic skills, but their social-emotional ones as well. Learning to gracefully balance varied and sometimes conflicting commitments shapes students into responsible, well-rounded young adults who can confidently navigate life’s challenges.
Learning in the Upper School is versatile, integrative and applicable to the real world. As a result, students are deeply engaged and eager for more. Small classrooms mean students also get the kind of personalized attention they need to thrive academically and as people.
The Upper School curriculum draws upon the International Baccalaureate (IB) framework and prepares students for success in college and beyond. While courses are challenging, they also inspire students to be active learners and bold leaders who positively impact their communities.
Beyond the Classroom
Upper School learning extends far beyond classroom walls, with students engaging in competitive athletics, outdoor education, performing and visual arts, global programs and service learning. These courses require active engagement and ensure Chadwick students become well-rounded individuals capable of balancing full lives.
Beyond regular school hours, Upper School students can take advantage of Chadwick’s Instrumental Music Program and the Korean Scholastic Credentials Recognition (KSCR) Program.
The College Counseling program guides students and parents through the important college application process. With ongoing resources, preparation checklists and individualized support, families are ensured expert advice and empowered to make the best choices.
