From The College School

Students at The College School never sit in class and wonder: “When will I use this in real life?”

At The College School, students in Preschool through Eighth Grade learn by going off campus, collaborating with experts, and creating solutions to real-world problems. We don’t teach to the test, drill worksheets, or learn content just for the sake of doing so. Instead, students master physics by designing and building their own roller coasters or learn financial literacy by starting their own businesses. We are a progressive, independent school with a 60-year history in Experiential Education.

We explore the world through authentic experiences. Along the way, students are part of a close-knit community that allows them to be who they are and to use their voice. With two teachers per classroom, students' learning journeys are both collaborative and differentiated. And with 4 buses, 3 playgrounds, greenhouse, and a 28-acre outdoor campus, it's no wonder students love coming to school.

Upcoming Events

We Learn Everywhere

academic spotlight

In addition to our main campus in Webster Groves, students at The College School frequently visit our local parks, neighborhoods, and our 28-acre outdoor LaBarque campus to connect learning to real-world scenarios. From Kindergarten's "Day in the Woods" to our Eighth Grade's 9-day Field Ecology Expedition in North Carolina, we go where the learning is.
