I see that many schools have “Chapel” – will my child be forced to adopt a faith?

Not at all. At most boarding schools, there are students from all over the world, and from many faiths. Time during Chapel is a tradition at most boarding schools, but it is not necessarily religious in nature. Chapel is a class period during which faculty and students gather to talk about the week ahead, listen to guest speakers, present talks to the group, or are uplifted with programming that is intended to educate and inspire.
