List of 3 items.

  • Lower School

    Second Grade artists in the Studio Two program connect with children at Jam's Academy in Bertoua, Cameroon, a Collegiate school partner, to learn more about each other's geography, culture and families. Then, using various materials, the students create products that are sold at our annual Night of Light. All proceeds from sales go to support Jam's Academy.
  • Middle School

    In the spring semester, students from Sainte Marie Bastide in France and Colegio Carol Baur in Mexico, two of Collegiate's partner schools, come and spend time in Richmond. The visiting students are hosted by Collegiate Middle School students and their families. While here visiting students attend classes, participate in activities and tour the local area. Collegiate 8th graders also travel to Bordeaux, France for an immersive cultural experience hosted by families from Sainte Marie Bastide.
  • Upper School

    Collegiate's Senior Capstone course Global Public Health strives to answer the question, "In an increasingly globalized world, how should we best address public health for human populations given their unique cultural, economic, environmental and political situations?" In the course, students seek to understand the unique challenges affecting citizens across multiple regions both domestically and internationally.
“Connecting across differences –whether on campus, in our Richmond community, nationally or abroad–helps our students to develop curiosity, resilience and confidence in new environments, build empathy and better understand how others’ lived stories influence their perspectives."
