What would you like kids and parents to know about your school?

“We believe that the best academic programs are tailored to the individual. We believe that exploration is critical during these foundational years, and we provide a wide variety of opportunities to learn, grow and discover. Most importantly, we believe that our supportive community of teachers, students and parents creates a safety net that allows our students to safely grow, challenge themselves and gain confidence.”

"The most important thing to know about
Chatsworth Hills Academy is that  EVERYONE WILL KNOW EACH CHILD BY NAME.”

What benefits do children gain from your school?

“Chatsworth Hills Academy helps children become their best possible selves—academically, socially and emotionally. Our graduates emerge as confident leaders, ready to express themselves, think critically and stand up for their point of view. They are good citizens who are empowered with the knowledge of where they excel and how they positively impact the world. Alongside rigorous academics, Chatsworth Hills Academy integrates core values and habits of mind into daily learning. Additionally, we encourage the development of life skills such as self-advocacy, teamwork and organization.”

What sets your school apart from the rest?

“We celebrate our preschool through 8th grade structure as ideal for providing a safe haven for growth and development, and we maximize the opportunities of this age grouping through a school-wide Buddy Program that pairs younger and older students for the benefit of both. By becoming friends with the big kids on campus, younger students gain the confidence they need to become active participants in the greater school community. Older students are given opportunities to lead, allowing them to serve as role models.”
