Welcome to Chatsworth Hills Academy

Excellence in Private School Education

At Chatsworth Hills Academy, our mission is to create a collaborative community of lifelong learners dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge through inquiry. We value teaching children how to learn over what to learn, and we strive to instill in our students the critical thinking skills they need to take responsibility for their own learning and discover more about themselves and the world around them. Through a peerless team of educators, a bright, inquisitive body of students, and a collaborative attitude in everything we do, we are committed to creating a community of active, engaged, and passionate learners.

Our Educational Philosophy

At all levels of education, we strive to give our students the freedom to explore, ask questions, and grow. Small class sizes, close student-teacher relationships, and flexible learning tasks that incorporate student voice encourage an individually tailored approach to education, while the integration of technology and the arts helps to reinforce our learn-by-doing approach.

  • Early Childhood: Our early childhood program centers on helping students develop a deep-seated love of learning as well as vital social skills that they need to thrive. Fun activities like Circle Time, Exploration Time, Music and Movement, Art, Storytime, Physical Education, Spanish, and Nature Walks engage the children’s hearts and minds while also showing them that school is a place where they can feel safe and succeed.
  • Lower School: Lower school is focused on helping every child develop into a principled, knowledgeable individual with strong skills in thinking critically and creatively, communication, and collaboration. Students develop their education through traditional disciplines like language arts, math, science, social studies, technology, music, art, and Spanish, while also expanding their horizons through International Baccalaureate units of inquiry, performances, projects, and stewardship of the campus. With small class sizes, a stimulating curriculum, and a nurturing classroom environment, lower school prepares students for the next leg of their academic journey.
  • Middle School: Middle school at CHA has our students use the skills and interests they’ve developed to facilitate a period of profound developmental growth. Students move into departmentalized instruction, with different teachers for each of their classes over the course of the day. Middle school students have a greater voice in in their affairs, and venture off campus for competitive activities such as Mock Trial and Model U.N. or class trips to Catalina, Yosemite, and Washington, D.C. Middle school is designed to develop the maturity of our oldest students as they transition into adolescence.
