The CHS Identity

One of the goals of the planning process was to distil the essence of a CHS education, the School’s ‘DNA’. This generated meaningful discussion and confirmed the fundamentals of who we are and what we do.

While the articulation of the CHS Identity is new, the ideas represented have guided the School since 1898. The Identity reinforces elements that continue to inspire our community, including the School values of courage, creativity, and citizenship.

More than a vision or mission statement, the CHS Identity brings to life the ethos that guides the School in ways that resonate for our community. Beyond its role in this plan, the Identity will increasingly be our touchstone in all decisions, actions, and communications.
