As you get to know Collegiate School, you will need only moments to realize the passion and sense of connectedness shared by our students, faculty, parents and alumni. Collegiate is a place rooted in 100-year-old traditions while remaining open to new ideas – it’s a fast-paced and challenging, yet supportive, place for children to learn and grow. Our students are creative thinkers, global explorers and dedicated athletes. Our teachers work every day to model ways of thinking that are both independent and collaborative, and to remind each student that he or she matters. Together, they enthusiastically pursue goals, yet learn at every grade level to see beyond themselves by serving others, locally and worldwide. Thank you for taking the time to learn about Collegiate School, and we invite you to campus to experience Collegiate firsthand.
