Apply to Lower School

A Lower School student in science class

We are so delighted you are considering applying to Collegiate’s Lower School for your son. New students are admitted into our Kindergarten annually and into other grades (1-4), when  openings permit. Please see below the steps required for completing your application. Applicants to Kindergarten can begin the application process immediately. Applicants to Grades 1-4 should contact the Admissions Office for a non-entry grade fee waiver code and then proceed with submitting the application, optional photo, applicant work sample, and parent copies of one to two previous years' report cards. We will be in touch if any openings occur in these non-entry grades and if we are able to offer the complete application process.

Personal recommendation letters are not required.
