Why is Equity and Diversity Important to Collegiate?

Collegiate School strives to educate each boy to reach his highest level of intellectual, ethical, artistic, and physical development. This philosophy is underscored by creating an equitable, diverse and inclusive learning environment that allows each student to thrive. Collegiate offers a rigorous academic program with limitless opportunities for cultivating individual talents and interests in a climate of collaboration and respect. We believe that the inclusion of diversity of thought improves upon the School’s tradition and challenges every student to excel academically and grow socially and emotionally. Collegiate continues its historic tradition in New York City of welcoming diverse and talented students with a steadfast commitment to inclusion that helps shape independent adults and responsible citizens who will, ultimately, lead and serve.
