The 23rd “Chatham Experience”  took place in April 2017.  Directors of Admission of New England independent secondary schools who participated thought it was, once again, a resounding success!

In April 1994, 23 independent school directors of admission from the Northeast gathered at the Chatham Bars Inn for the inaugural “Chatham Experience.” The program’s first agenda included a review of the admission season, an assessment of regional trends and discussions focused on issues affecting admission. Just as important during the two-day program was the collegiality that was created among the participating schools. See a list of "Chatham Experience" participants.

Twenty-three years later, the New England based group of Directors of Admission has nearly doubled, we have moved to Harwich on the Cape and the agenda remains focused on the evolving important issues of the day affecting secondary school admission directors. The collegiality within the profession has continued to grow.
