School History:

Chatham Hall was founded in 1894 in Chatham, Va. We believe that when a young woman steps beyond the boundary of her own comfort zone, she realizes the true power of her potential. Every day across campus, you’ll discover your individual passions, learn to balance joy with challenge, gratitude with ambition, and to champion each other as you begin to weave together informed perspectives that will make up your worldview. With endless opportunities illuminated before you, you’ll feel confident taking the first steps toward a life that is all your own.
