Challenging coursework that drives a love of learning
Along with excellence in academic skills, Upper School students build self-knowledge, communication skills, social and cultural awareness, and a strong sense of community. Learning is something they get to do.
As they approach their final years of education, each student is carefully guided in choosing the pathway that will best serve their long-term goals — a choice that is ideally made before the end of Grade 10.
All students are given an advisor who, together with subject teachers, the Director of Secondary Studies, the College Counseling department and the other student support networks at Chadwick, will track student progress throughout Grades 11 and 12.
In Chadwick's Upper School Grades 11 and 12, students have three diploma pathway options:
- Chadwick International Diploma
- IBDP - International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme
- IBCP - International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme
Regardless of their diploma pathway, all students take required courses in mathematics; individuals and societies; science; global language; arts; physical and health education; outdoor education; and creativity, activity and service (CAS); and they must complete an Extended Essay or Senior Project.
All students who graduate from Chadwick International will receive a Chadwick Diploma — a U.S. accredited high school diploma.
At Chadwick, we’re preparing students for challenges and jobs that don’t even currently exist yet! That’s why Chadwick’s brand of education is so special.
