Chase Collegiate School is an academically demanding PreK-12, co-ed independent day school, located on 47 acres in Waterbury, Conn. Chase has been a leader in education since 1865. Our school was founded on the premise that children deserve a wide, high and strong liberal education and on the belief that the role of primary school should be teaching children how to learn. We know that every child holds within him or herself great potential. By harnessing their professional knowledge, their passion for teaching and their understanding of your child, our teachers guide their students to achieve academically, intellectually, ethically, creatively and athletically. They expect to stretch themselves in academics, yet discover reason to do the same in the arts and athletics.
