Chartwell School

Mission

Chartwell School empowers bright students with language-based learning differences, including dyslexia. We do this in grades K-12 by offering them the knowledge, creativity, and skills in self-advocacy and perseverance needed to thrive in college and beyond.

The Big Idea

Chartwell School empowers students with language-based learning differences, including dyslexia, offering them the knowledge, creativity, and skills in self-advocacy and perseverance needed to thrive in college and beyond. Chartwell School’s work to empower students is based on the concept that literacy is an essential human right, the basis for lifelong learning and a powerful instrument of transformation. One in five children struggles with a language-based disability, and Chartwell’s flexible, pragmatic, innovative, research-based, and student-centered approach to teaching and learning has served students well even when they had to transition to online learning during the pandemic.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.

The 2020 Campaign begins November 12.
