Description

Collegiate School is an independent, college preparatory school that teaches more than just skills. The Collegiate experience inspires our community to learn from each other new ways of thinking. Character is as important as creativity, integrity accompanies intellect, and service joins leadership. Global education is a significant component of the Collegiate experience, beginning in kindergarten. Our annual International Emerging Leaders Conference is considered groundbreaking in K-12 educational circles, and we are believed to be the first school in the nation to develop and host a curriculum-based international conference during the formal school year. Fifty high school students from around the world come to our campus for 10 days to explore environmental and global economic issues, and to work with industry leaders on creating solutions. While preparing our students for success in college is a significant part of our mission, we intentionally focus on preparing them to succeed in life, in a global world where their critical thinking skills and creativity will help them make significant contributions. Collegiate alums include: Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson; film producer Michael Gottwald ("Beasts of the Southern Wild"); fashion designer Sarah Hailes Easley (co-founder of a new line for Target), 2012 Olympic equestrian Nina Ligon, and numerous others who continue to impact the world in positive ways. VALUES Collegiate School is a community with a continuing commitment to the following shared values. These values guide our philosophy, educational program, and daily interaction: Honor: Personal integrity and devotion to the truth which make one trustworthy, forthright, responsible, and fair. Love of Learning: A creative spirit that promotes intellectual and personal growth through exploration, inquiry, and openness to change. Excellence: A sustained commitment to meeting high standards of character, achievement and personal accountability. Respect: Fundamental regard for the dignity and worth of each individual regardless of differences. Community: A commitment to responsive and compassionate citizenship and service on campus, in the local community, and in the broader world. Facebook Policy: We invite the Facebook community to visit our page and participate with us in positive dialogue about news and other issues pertinent to Collegiate School and to its students, faculty and alums. We reserve the right to remove posts that contain inflammatory or derogatory language, or that are not relevant to the focus and mission of Collegiate School and its Facebook page.

Ton of Coins is TOMORROW!!! We hope all Cougars will remember to bring all the coins you can find. Proceeds from this annual Halloween tradition will be used to fund a scholarship for a Collegiate student.

Congrats to Collegiate Senior Strib Walker, who has been selected as this week's winner for the Lexus of Richmond Pursuit of Perfection Leadership Award. Earlier this year, Katherine Golladay '15 was also selected as a weekly winner. Each school year, Lexus of Richmond recognizes an outstanding scholar-athlete per week, culminating in the selection of one winner out of the 30 nominees at the end of the school year. The winner receives a $10,000 stipend. Good luck to both Collegiate student athletes!
