CHP Education and Research Foundation
Welcome – The CHP Education and Research Foundation
The broad vision of The Cedar Hill Prep Education and Research Foundation (CHPERF) is to support, train, and research co-curricular whole-child learning activities at Cedar Hill Prep School.
The CHPERF is committed to providing Cedar Hill Prep students with a broader educational experience to compliment the rigor and excellence of the academic program currently offered at CHP.
It is the principal goal of CHPERF to nurture co-curricular activities at CHP not only to provide the highest quality education possible for CHP students but also to foster the development of CHP as a regional leader in independent education who, through support, training and research, will be a positive force for research driven change in the education sector.
- CHPERF provides resources to support the operating budgets of co-curricular educational programs that enhance the Cedar Hill Prep School experience for students.
- CHPERF provides training, mentorship, and professional development opportunities for program facilitators in progressive, whole-child pedagogical/methodological approaches. Program facilitators will also be trained in current research methods that they will use to evaluate their programs efficacy and impact.
- All CHPERF sponsored programs will include rigorous quantitative and/or qualitative assessment of key research objectives. This research will be used by CHP faculty to create an integrated whole-child curriculum that will be disseminated to the larger educational community vis-à-vis publication and conference attendance.
On Friday October 12th during lunch and recess, all middle schoolers experienced DEAR (Drop Everything and Read). This program is being initialed to support a community of readers here at CHP. Across all hallways and in all classrooms students ate their lunches in quiet bliss as they got lost in a good book. Some parents responded to our open invitation and joined their student for some special reading time. We look forward to our monthly DEAR Time and encourage all parents to join us!
CHP has grown into a strong community, and our students and families are integral to our school. To capture the essence of this community, we would like to feature our CHP families in our very own "Humans of CHP." CHPERF would like to recognize, Mr. Ruchira Jayasuriya and Mrs. Shalini Sirisena, parents of Pre-K3 student Siyana Jayasuriya...
