Dr. Chuback was given the high honor of being asked to sit on the Board of Trustees at the private K-8 school. Of course, the Doctor was proud to accept the nomination. Having spent nine years being educated in the city that St. Philip’s calls home, he found it fitting to be able to give back to the community that had been so instrumental in his own personal growth and success.

The school exists to provide a unique educational opportunity for capable students, regardless of their ability to pay, enabling them upon graduation to be successful in the most selective secondary schools in the nation. They seek to provide a model of educational excellence, thereby contributing to the revitalization of the city of Newark.
