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!

My experience at Collegiate was negative. The school markets a sense of community, but that only applies if you fit the mold. It’s a business in it for money. The administration is horrific. I had interactions with the administrators and if a situation doesn’t fit their narrative, they assume the student is lying, be it bullying or sexual misconduct. If you aren’t interested in athletics, the school makes it challenging to meet a sports requirement. If you are involved in anything besides the set list of sports, that is not accepted. The lack of diversity is appalling. Collegiate makes no effort to listen to any requests. There is an attitude in students, that they carry after graduation, and they are no more prepared than anyone else for college. Collegiate brainwashes that you will be better or readier in college, which is false. They do hire some great teachers, who deserve credit for their influence in students lives. Overall not worth the money.
Collegiate has fallen as a top tier school. Admissions are struggling. A tremendous amount of money and they didn't do anything about the UVA article hoping it would go away. The amount of work that these students do is incredible compared to surrounding schools but that is not being conveyed. UVA, Clemson, UGA and USC are a struggle to get into now.
The counselor seems intent to protect themselves than doing their job The upper school headmaster seems lost and is not working up to his potential, he doesn't bother to get to know the kids and has made the school much more strict than in years past which strips away rights the students have earned by attending a college prep school. He seems angry most of the time, not organized. Steve Hickman is a nice man but his focus is on growing the school and there is bad overcrowding, something has been lost. This was a special place but for the first time I would not recommend this school until admissions get their act together.
