Springside Chestnut Hill Academy was formed by the 2010 merger between all-girls Springside School and all-boys Chestnut Hill Academy, private Pre-K–12 schools on adjacent campuses.


The school—also known as SCH Academy and SCH—has a unique educational model, stemming from its history as two independent, single-sex institutions. The Lower and Middle Schools, grades Pre-K to 8, continue to be single-sex and follow many of their traditions such as May Day (girls) and Blue and Blue Day (boys), and the Upper School is coeducational.
In 2012, SCH Academy established the Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL) to complement its core curriculum and to cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset.

The school is situated on a 62-acre campus and serves 1,100 boys and girls from more than 90 zip codes and internationally.
