Collegiate Voices

During this unprecedented time, Collegiate faculty and staff continue to deliver on our mission with innovation, creativity and passion. Our Admission Office welcomes the opportunity to speak with you about the inspired learning that continues to take place throughout our JK-12 community.

We wish we could walk with you around our beautiful campus where you could witness firsthand our vibrant, close-knit community at its best. Since we can’t give you an in-person tour, we decided to invite the experts — some of our students and faculty — to answer questions you might ask while walking through our spaces. The videos on this page are narrated with their unscripted words spoken from the heart, from cell phones and from our homes.

Please enjoy, and know that we look forward to one day walking with you, getting to know your family and sharing our stories in person.
