At Choate, learning doesn’t stop at 3 p.m., and it extends well beyond the classroom. When we live and learn together, moments to teach and learn happen all the time, for our students and teachers alike. For the minds that are always open, our doors are, too.
A "Day" in the Life
Day Student Experience
A commute to campus doesn’t mean you’re left out of life at Choate. The end of the academic day isn’t the end of your day—with a variety of clubs, activities, and sports to choose from, our doors stay open to our day students long after your last class.
With student-focused spaces like St. John Hall and the Lanphier Café, day students can remain on campus until curfew, joining friends and classmates for meals, games, study sessions, and a chance to kick back and have fun once the day is done.
Weekend activities and overnights on campus are open to you, making Choate your true home away from home.
Boarding Student Experience
The boarding experience is a truly unique one, combining unhindered learning with unimpeded access to the teachers, programs, facilities, and friends that make an impact.
It goes beyond what you learn in a textbook—it’s about the formation of character, living as a true member of a community, embracing differences, and adapting to new experiences and perspectives. It’s where curriculum and community intertwine, giving you the tools you need to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
With large, dynamic dorms and smaller, close-knit houses, you’ll live alongside your peers and teachers, giving you a one-of-a-kind experience not only shaping how you learn, but how you grow.
