Student Experience

A Culture of Giving

SCH and Philanthropy

We are proud to say that giving is an integral part of life at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy. Our teachers and staff do an incredible job guiding our students through their early lives and adolescence, and our families and friends offer tremendous support, year after year, to make that work possible and to help our programs thrive.
One of our goals is to create a school community aimed at preparing students for a lifetime of leadership and service. Our community members continue to give selflessly of their time, talents, and resources to make SCH what it is today—a school of excellent standards that develops global citizens who are prepared to give back to the world in which we live.
In developing the whole student, SCH is aware that we are only here because of the generosity of our donors, and we seek to build upon that same spirit of philanthropy within our active community. From the Lower School, where students participate in regular food drives, to the Upper School, where students lead service projects, raise money for disaster relief, and annually log coutless hours of service, SCH instills the importance of giving back to the larger community.
Our students reflect a generous spirit because the adults in their lives model philanthropic behavior. Simply put, philanthropy connects people to SCH in a deeper way and makes the community stronger.
An SCH education represents an investment made by parents, teachers, and a wider community of generous people extending back several generations. The school looks to today’s community to become a part of the investment by giving of their time, abilities, and resources.
