Coming to Collegiate
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 5, 2023, for the 2024-25 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. We encourage you to submit an application at your earliest convenience in order 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 interactive lunchtime Zoom series for you to learn more about boys' education, academic rigor, curriculum, and community in the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools, Institutional Equity and Belonging, and other important topics about our K-12 school. This series and open house events begin in October. You are in for a treat hearing from my wonderful colleagues about the incredible learning environment our students are immersed in. Applicant families may sign up for these events via the Finalsite Enrollment portal.
Kindly contact the Office of Admissions and Enrollment team with any questions, and please feel assured that all courtesies will be extended your way as you navigate the application process. Thank you for your interest in Collegiate School. We look forward to meeting your family, and sharing more about Collegiate!
