From the Parents...
"As parents of four children who have attended The Chapel School we could not have wished for a better place for them to go. All four have gone on to do well and we could not be prouder of them. As doting parents it would be easy to say they are all smart (we think they are), but the truth is they had an excellent head start at Chapel. All four got accepted into Master's High School. The oldest graduated cumlodi with a double degree. The next one with a degree in Wildlife Biology. Our 3rd is staring Goucher this fall and the youngest is a senior at Masters High with a GPA of 3.8. Don't walk, run to get your child registered!"
"The initial reason that we switched our boys from the public school system to The Chapel School is because of class size. In a larger classroom setting, they were getting lost and coasting by. My children were fine, but not thriving. I wanted a place that would be encouraging, challenging and caring. I wanted them to be in a school where they could expand their thinking, grow, find their voice, excel and learn in a more methodical fashion. I also wanted them know that if they worked hard, it would be noticed and celebrated. The Chapel School's Christian focus is seen in the every facet of their education. They treat the students as children of God who are loved when they excel and also when they fall."
"It is hard to express all of the ways our lives have been blessed through The Chapel School. Wonderful families, nurturing teachers, challenging academics, incredible music and exciting athletic opportunities, all in the context of a compassionate and beautifully diverse community. I am deeply grateful for the ways the teachers and leaders of The Chapel School continue, year after year, to nurture and inspire children."

"Seventeen years ago, when I first began to research potential elementary schools for my oldest child who was entering first grade, the most important factors in my consideration were class sizes (student/teacher ratio), pedagogical philosophy and racial/ethnic diversity. On all counts, no other private, religiously affiliated institution matched TCS. TCS has continued to demonstrate a commitment to class sizes that lead to optimal student performance, particularly in the younger grades. When I asked the question about pedagogical philosophy, other institutions didn’t have an understanding about what I was speaking of, but the faculty, administration and staff at the TCS did. In fact, their collaboration with Concordia College has kept TCS up to date on recent research and developments in education. As for racial/ethnic diversity, TCS “walks the talk” that all children are made in the image of God; it was as clear to me when I visited the school over 17 years ago as it is today. For these reasons and many more, I have recommended TCS to other families."

"Having just returned from the 1Q parent/teacher meetings at Fordham Prep, my wife and I
would like to share with you the wonderful feedback we received on our son's academic status.
Each one of his teachers (all Honors courses, no less) made a point of stating that they felt
he was very well prepared by the education he received prior to arriving at Fordham Prep and that it was apparent from day one that he enjoys being in a school / learning environment. Clearly, the success he is experiencing now stems directly from his time growing up at The Chapel School. My wife and I could not be happier. Thank you all once again for your excellent work through the years. The Fordham Prep teachers' comments echo what we have believed all along!"

From the Students...
"The Chapel School provides a good learning environment, allowing you to grow and become an individual while being part of a community. It helps you to establish life-long friendships (I still talk to all of my middle school friends) in a very positive environment where the teachers are very close to the students. They keep our best interests in mind and provide a good foundation that helped me transition to high school."

"The first word that comes to mind when I think about Chapel is family. From the first day I arrived at Chapel until present I have felt like I was part of a family who accepted and loved me. Chapel takes in any new student, faculty member or parent and treats them like they have been there forever. Even after a student graduates, they know that they will always have their Chapel family to go back to. I can happily say that I am a part of the loving, caring, wonderful community.
My favorite memories of my time at The Chapel School are going to the Church every Wednesday and praising the Lord with all of the other students. It is a joyous time where the student body can be together and when the true Chapel spirit is revealed. The spirit of love is expressed, not only for each other, but for our savior Jesus Christ.
Other children should attend The Chapel School because they will make the best friends and the best memories of their lives. Not only will they make everlasting memories but they will have the chance to achieve academic greatness while learning about the love of Jesus Christ. Chapel provides a loving community that will support them and make every effort to ensure that they can succeed. Overall, The Chapel School is the best place to educate your child in a welcoming, loving and spiritual environment."
