The more than 17,000 graduates can attest to the quality of Choate's academic program, but that is only one aspect of the education a student receives.

A Tradition of Excellence William Gardner Choate, who established The Choate School, his wife Mary Atwater Choate and Caroline Ruutz-Rees, founders of Rosemary Hall, had a shared vision: offering students opportunities to advance themselves. Just as a strong foundation at Choate prepares students for college, so too did the convictions of the founders establish the pursuit of excellence that remains a hallmark of Choate today. How is excellence manifested? The Class of 2011 had 8 National Merit Finalists; 10 Semifinalists and 47 Commended Scholars.
