Give to *CHAD: Changing Lives, Designing Futures

Since 1999, thousands of CHAD graduates have succeeded in college, in the design professions and in life.  

We change lives. Our kids want to learn and fulfill their promise.  We accept no excuses – our teachers expect and receive the very best from our students. They come to school and stay in school. They learn and grow in self-esteem. On an annual basis, CHAD graduates between 95 and 100% of its senior class. Between 90 - 95% of these graduates are accepted into college.
