CH-CH is home to a diverse group of students from a multitude of states and countries who share the desire and potential to achieve greater academic success, while our experienced, dedicated and creative faculty shares the responsibility of teaching the way our students learn. CH-CH students find a learning environment that is academically challenging and innovative, coupled with the option of receiving additional academic help within our cohesive Skills and Academic Support program. All aspects of life at CH-CH, from weekly teacher-written progress reports to an individualized approach to college counseling, are student-centered. Our encouraging, compassionate and supportive community climate fosters leadership, respect, creative thinking and independence in our students. The primary focus of our active curriculum and environment is to successfully prepare our students for college, and beyond. We are dedicated to differentiated classroom instruction, and have developed a “multiple intelligences” approach to teaching and learning which allows us to focus on providing students with a range of engaging learning opportunities – both in and out of the classroom.

Summary: As noted in our curriculum guide, "Every day we strive to inspire our students to discover their talents and to leverage these talents to learn new skills and content. In many ways our classrooms have become more like laboratories than lecture halls, places where students engage actively in the process of discovery as they produce works of literature, science, and art.
Along with our approach to teaching and learning, we believe that the curriculum we offer at CH-CH has the potential to transform our students as thinkers and learners. In keeping with our appreciation of diversity, our curriculum is remarkably rich for a small college preparatory school. At the beginning levels, we introduce students to foundational skills and content across the disciplines so that they will emerge prepared not only to succeed but also to delight in the electives they choose as juniors and seniors."

LTPs receive direct feedback & supervision from group counselors or specialist to whom they are assigned, & from the LTP Director. In the afternoons, LTPs reconvene as a group & can participate in the regular camp activities. Time is also spent debriefing and processing experiences with campers in the mornings, engaging in team-building activities & discussion on leadership styles.
