“In today’s times, providing a curriculum and programs that allow students and faculty to challenge their assumptions, engage with others in the broader community and push their boundaries of understanding and empathy has never been more important. I am grateful for the JK-12 impact the Powell Institute for Responsible Citizenship has on our learners." Sara Boisvert Director, Powell Institute for Responsible Citizenship Responsible Citizenship Team
Responsible Citizenship at Collegiate empowers engaged, contributing citizens by nurturing students’ compassion, creativity and purpose.
Our School’s promise is to nurture and equip our students as scholars and citizens. The Powell Institute for Responsible Citizenship brings together eight vital areas (known as pillars) of school life under one umbrella to ensure that each grade level builds on the foundation of the previous one, supporting students’ Junior Kindergarten through 12th Grade growth. The Institute provides a cohesive curriculum in these areas by fully immersing these pillars into the academic program.
Students in each division of our School exemplify their understanding of and growth in the tenets of our pillars by participating in a culminating capstone program. Our 4th Graders participate in Envision Collegiate, our 8th Graders participate in Envision Richmond and our 12th Graders participate in Envision Your World.
Ignite - Responsible Citizenship Blog
Igniteoffers insight into how our programs come to life in Collegiate's curriculum, highlighting various examples of student projects and faculty reflections across the eight pillars.
