Choate attracts intellectually motivated students from over 40 states and 40 countries, whose commitment to serious study is enhanced in this personally supportive, diverse, and academically challenging setting. Choate is confident that its graduates will go forth from a school that values each of them for their talents and enthusiasms; that affirms the importance of personal integrity and a sense of self-worth; that inspires and nourishes joy in learning and love of truth; and that provides the intellectual stimulation to generate independent thought, confident expression, and a commitment to improve the welfare of others.
