Coming to Collegiate
Thank you for your interest in Collegiate School. We are delighted and eager to share more about our incredible school community and we look forward to getting to know your family through the application process.
A Collegiate education has long-term, life-long impact as students engage intellectually with the world, think critically, and nurture valuable relationships throughout their time at Collegiate and as alumni. Being immersed in the Collegiate environment adds perspectives to intellectual engagements and social interactions, encourages critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity, and enhances leadership skills. We proudly celebrate boys' education and academic excellence, and are deeply invested in community and belonging.
Our application process will open on September 6, 2022, for the 2023-24 school year. Every step of the process is designed to provide families with many opportunities to learn more about our school from different members of our school community. Kindly follow the steps on your division’s admission page paying close attention to any deadlines. We encourage you to submit an application at your earliest convenience in order for us to schedule the applicant’s in-person visit and the parent virtual interview. For applicant families, in addition to the required components of your application file, we will be offering an optional webinar series for you to learn more about boys' education and academic rigor, curriculum and community in the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools, Institutional Equity and Belonging, library technology, and other important topics about our K-12 school.

Collegiate School is a member school of NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools) NYSAIS (New York State Association of Independent Schools) Parents League of New York, EMA (Enrollment Management Association) and AISAP (Association of Independent School Admission Professionals).

Collegiate seeks to enroll boys of sound character and educational promise. Much of the strength of Collegiate comes from the diverse backgrounds of its students. The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin, socio-economics, sexual orientation, family type/structure, disability, or other legally protected class. A generous financial aid program enables the school to welcome families with various financial resources.
Interviews, tests, school records, and recommendations are used to select students. None of these sources of information is given arbitrary weight by the Admissions Committee. Collegiate looks for students who will benefit from our incredible program and who will enrich our school community by contributing their own special talents, abilities, imagination, curiosity and interpersonal skills.
The information in the admissions material does not create any contractual obligation and may be changed at any time at the sole discretion of the school. Collegiate reserves the right to make changes affecting admissions policies and procedures, tuition, fees, courses of instruction, programs of study, faculty listing, academic grading policies, and general regulations.
