Why PG at Choate?

A Postgraduate experience at Choate provides high school students an additional year of academic, athletic and personal preparation before college.

Choate allowed me to attend Union College, and gave me the tools to succeed and graduate from Union, which would not have happened if I had entered college immediately from high school. The academic and athletic opportunities that Choate offers are wonderful, but what I always remember about Choate is the people. The academic and athletic advantages Choate offers are remarkable but it’s the people at Choate that helped me become a better person.
