Chase Collegiate School

565 Chase Pky, Waterbury, CT 06708

Formerly called St. Margaret's-McTernan School, the school resulted from the 1972 merger of St. Margaret's School (founded in 1865), a girls' boarding school, and the McTernan School (established in 1912), a boys' day school. Chase Collegiate assumed its current name in July 2005. The school occupies a 47-acre, wooded campus on a hill overlooking the city. Separate buildings house the lower, middle and upper schools. A rigorous traditional curriculum in English, history, mathematics, science and foreign languages is complemented by numerous electives in art, music, drama and computer technology. Many students take advantage of the array of honors and Advanced Placement courses. Field trips in each grade are planned throughout the academic year, with the focus on extending and enriching the classroom experience; the school sponsors European trips during March break. Drama internships are available through Waterbury's Seven Angels Theatre. Frequent public affairs seminars bring students and guest professionals together to discuss various issues. Interscholastic sports begin in grade 6, and community service projects are an important part of Chase Collegiate's extracurricular program at all grade levels.
