"Receiving a holistic education makes me a well-rounded individual and that's the kind of person I want to be."
What makes CHC unique?
“The size and placement of CHC are what makes it unique to me. The size allows for great relationships to form and give the student the chance to connect with their professors on a personal level. You certainly don’t feel like a number in the classroom. The location is also great. We are located right next to Fairmount Park which gives us that nice woodsy feel but we are also inside the city of Philadelphia. This gives students a great chance to get into the city and take full advantage of everything it has to offer.”
Benefits of a Holistic Education
"Receiving the holistic education has many benefits. Instead of leaving CHC with knowledge in only one specific area, I will be leaving with an education in a broad variety of subjects. This will help me in both my life and the job. The holistic education will allow me to use my knowledge in many fields to teach my students about history beyond the textbooks. Receiving a holistic education makes me a well-rounded individual and that's the kind of person I want to be."
