    Wichita Collegiate School is a truly fantastic establishment that provides a one-of-a-kind education. I have attended Collegiate since preschool, and I am forever amazed at the level of care and dedication each and every teacher and faculty member possesses. The school provides a positive learning environment and boundless opportunities for its students. Not only does Collegiate have stellar academics, but they also have so many other experiences to enrich the life of each and every student- whether they are in preschool or a senior in high school! Sports, fine arts, vocal music department, band, and the amazing STEM building and innovation labs provide a unique experience. Our teachers expect our best efforts and the students expect their teachers to be willing to help with every step. Collegiate students are no strangers to challenges. Our school motto, Probe Te Dignum, translates to "Prove Yourself Worthy." The students at Collegiate display this motto throughout their schooling.

    Finding Collegiate was and continues to be an answer to prayer! I have 3 teenage sons. They are athletes and my husband and I wanted a school where they would thrive not only as athletes, but more importantly, as students. Collegiate has been that place for our family. My sons have been challenged in their academic performance and yet they have been supported and cared for. Collegiate has fostered an environment that expected them and allowed for them to grow as leaders in the classroom and on their athletic teams. My sons recognize the difference, as well. The smaller class size and level of family involvement provides a community feel similar to that of a small town. The faculty and staff investment and support extends beyond their 8 hr work day. The financial sacrifice we have made to have our young men at Collegiate is priceless and every bit worth the investment!
    Wichita Collegiate School is truly a unique and happy place to go to school. There are a plethora of opportunities for growth and teachers truly care about students here. Teachers make themselves available to students on a daily basis before and after school and make it a point to have personal connections with students. It is a bit of a culture shock to go from public school to a private school, but once you get used to it, there is truly no better place to be!
