Student Life at ATI Chantilly

Find your place in our community! The school community is co-created by students and guides. Our school routines, our trips, our clubs, our constitutions, and how we decorate our space are all built together. As well as engaging in their local community, our students are active in the global ATI network and the global community at large.

  • Clubs and interest groups created by students
  • Student-run small businesses
  • Making furniture and choosing art to decorate the physical space
  • Course design, creation, and even teaching
  • Morning and afternoon meetings are part of the daily routine

Working together

Studying and working together are important to our students. The Maker Space at ATI Chantilly, for instance, is a great place to collaborate on big projects. Taking part in entrepreneurship in school and outside of it, like our New York students operating a compost bin business.

We help our students build new things in their communities through creativity, innovation, and ambition. Their hobbies include volunteering, starting businesses, and creating art.
