Choate Rosemary Hall's balanced curriculum offers students a firm grounding in the fundamentals of clear thinking and expression — with emphasis on individual development.
Our six academic departments all offer traditional core courses as well as a variety of electives. The comprehensive curriculum offered at Choate:
- fosters broad exposure to all disciplines
- allows students the opportunity to discover and pursue in depth special areas of interest
The expectation at Choate is that students — as well as faculty and staff — energetically and enthusiastically devote significant time and energy to the pursuit of learning.
The seeming tension between these two objectives — breadth and depth — is monitored in each student's schedule with the help of the adviser, dean, and, as appropriate, college counselor. Each student graduates from Choate with a program that:
- makes sense for him or her
- fits each student well
- introduces each student in a comprehensive way to colleges
While grounding students in the core of each major discipline, Choate's academic program allows those with special talents and/or well-developed interests to specialize in an area of strength or passion.
