Students who live near Chatham can attend Hargrave as a Day Cadet (non boarding).

Hargrave is a college preparatory school, not a pathway to serving in the military. It is, instead, the spirit of the military, teaching the students honor, integrity, self-discipline, pride, tolerance, endurance, all of which builds character that benefits each student throughout their life.

Why do Day Cadets come to Hargrave?

  • Stronger academics - they want or need more than their current school provides
  • A high quality athletics program - a smaller program also means more opportunities to play
  • A better environment - safe, clean, smaller, structured
  • They want a college prep academy with a reputation for training up boys into men of character and success
