Chinquapin is a college preparatory boarding and day school that serves academically motivated students in grades 6 through 12 from Houston’s under-resourced communities and schools.
Peterson Family Academic Fund
Chinquapin’s dedicated faculty play a vital role in the education of our college-bound boarding and day students. They live among students, enriching their boarding experience. However, despite our unique benefits package, our faculty’s current pay is 8% to 22% lower than that of their counterparts.
