I love the small community feel of Collegiate. I absolutely love the teachers here as every single one puts in unbelievable effort every day to get to know you as best the can. I have amazing relationships with all of my teachers and wouldn’t trade my experience at Collegiate for anything. The school is built for the perfection of education and the creation of a strong community. That network extends all over Richmond and I will be with my dad around town, who went to Collegiate as well, and will see a Collegiate classmate and it is as if they were best friends. Everybody knows and respects the institution that is Collegiate School. I am very fortunate to have been able to attend since kindergarten. The college counseling office is incredible and makes the colleges process easy almost. The food service is wonderful and happy to greet you everyday. The school has amazing foreign relations with partner schools as well to expand student horizons.

Collegiate is easily the best private school in Richmond and among the best in the United States.

As a recent graduate, I am extremely thankful for the education that I received at Collegiate. Academics are strong in every department, but I was particularly struck by the small humanities seminars. I had the opportunity to approach issues and read texts that most of my peers in college had only just begun to think about. Collegiate stresses learning through both individual study and social interaction. This combination was particularly helpful to my intellectual and social development.

More than anything, I think Collegiate is simply a happy place filled with many opportunities for friendship and with teachers who place a great deal of emphasis in interacting with each student as an individual. I not only became a better student, but also a better friend, a more physically active person, and more invested in the community around me.
Fantastic school. The sense of community and integrity among the students is unparalleled among leading independent schools in the nation. All of my teachers were extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter and pushed me to the limits of my capabilities. A two-season sports requirement encourages healthy lifestyles among students, and the growing STEAM program is ahead of most schools nationwide. Most of the students that graduate from Collegiate attend prestigious universities on the east coast and across the continent. The campus is breathtaking and actually feels like a college. You definitely get what you pay for at Collegiate, with a pricey cost, but in the end, it is totally worth it. The college counseling office at Collegiate, truly helps prepare its students for tackling the college process. I highly recommend!
