  • Mission:
  • The mission of Chartwell School is to diagnostically educate students with specific learning variations in a way that provides them with the academic skills, confidence, creativity and perseverance necessary to meet the challenges of mainstream education and lifelong learning.

  • History:
  • Chartwell was founded in 1983 to meet the needs of students with a wide range of language-related learning variations, including dyslexia. These are students who find that learning to read is extremely difficult and they struggle in traditional academic settings, despite normal or better intelligence. Accredited at the highest level by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Chartwell offers a full mainstream curriculum that meets or exceeds California state standards. Chartwell places special emphasis on language development, hands-on science, the arts, the social and emotional foundations of learning, and environmental education.

    In August 2006 we opened our new green campus on 30 acres in Seaside, Ca. Our prior 21 years of services were offered in small rented facilities. The total cost of the new campus was approximately $11M.

    On August 17, 2009 Chartwell opened The New High School Project (TNHSP) for students in grades nine and ten who have learning variations and have struggled in a traditional school setting. TNHSP uses project-based learning and incorporates the latest in educational research on teen learning.
