Chadwick School is a K-12, independent day school located in Palos Verdes Peninsula, California. The school serves 747 students in three divisions: the Village School (K-6), Middle School (7-8) and Upper School (9-12).
Since the school's founding in 1935 by Margaret Chadwick, the school has been guided by her vision that academic excellence, the development of good character, and the discovery of self would be the essence of Chadwick's educational philosophy. Today, Chadwick offers students a challenging academic curriculum that is supported by strong programs in athletics and the arts, and is enhanced by nationally recognized community service and outdoor education programs.
Chadwick is perhaps best described by the school's mission statement which reads: "Chadwick is dedicated to academic excellence and to the development of self-confident individuals of good character who are prepared to accept the responsibilities inherent in personal freedom.
"The school aims to create a learning environment that is challenging, diverse and supportive where talented, dedicated faculty and students are encouraged to interact in an atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. Students are prepared for rigorous future educational endeavors in a manner that enables them to discover the joys of learning and the importance of community."

Hopkins, the fifth oldest educational institution in the country, was established in 1660 by this country's first charitable trust. Edward Hopkins, second Governor of Connecticut Colony, founded Hopkins Grammar School on the New Haven Green for "the breeding up of hopeful youths… for the public service of the country in future times."
Hopkins is a diverse, independent, co-educational day school for 650 students in grades seven through twelve. Located on a 108-acre wooded campus overlooking the city of New Haven, Hopkins defines itself as a community of civility and learning and takes pride in its distinguished faculty and dedicated staff.
Hopkins is committed to fostering those qualities that come from a liberal arts education: learning how to learn, how to think clearly, how to express ideas effectively, and how to work independently. Today, as throughout the school's history, students learn that knowledge should be tempered by ethical judgment, consideration for others, and aesthetic sensibility; that curiosity and love of learning are essential ingredients in academic achievement and college preparation; and that intelligence and training carry with them the obligation to serve others.

Maret School was founded in 1911 as a French school. Today, Maret is an independent, coeducational, K-12, college preparatory day school of 600 students. Our international heritage is reflected currently in a strong foreign language program which begins in kindergarten. Located amidst the vast resources of Washington, D.C., the campus site is historic: It was once considered for the Capitol and, in the nineteenth century, became the summer residence of four United States Presidents.
Maret School galvanizes the intellectual, analytical, creative, and physical capabilities of our students and equips them to excel in future academic endeavors. We join with our parents to instill in each student the self-reliance and moral awareness to develop healthy personal relationships, work through challenges and enjoy life. In a community that embraces different cultures, interests, perspectives, and talents, we prepare our students to become responsible, thoughtful, and well-informed adults who are able to play an active role in improving the world.
