From its shared roots over a century ago as The Choate School and Rosemary Hall, through the merger in 1974, to the Choate Rosemary Hall of today, the name represents the best in American secondary education. 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. Through interactions with members of the entire Choate community, students mature into young adults who not only have stretched their minds, but have grown personally, artistically, and athletically. 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. Choate offers more Advanced Placement (AP) courses than any of our peer schools, with 94 percent earning 3 or better, which traditionally results in college credit; more than 78 percent of those students earned 4 or 5.
