Cougar Community
Oliver Wendell Holmes said it best, "Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts." For over 100 years, Collegiate School has become and remains home to so many. We are proud to welcome our newest Cougars to the family and to thank our current and past family members for supporting and making this School such a strong source of pride. At Collegiate, we celebrate traditions and anxiously look forward to what the future holds. A future molded by our values and grounded in "Minds that seek. Hearts that serve."

Cherished Traditions

Most schools have special programs or traditions that serve as hallmarks of the special bonds forged between students, families, and faculty over the years. Here are some of our treasured ones:
