The COVID-19 pandemic has taken an enormous toll on the ensure world and on all our lives.
Our day to day lives have instantly changed and it has become a scary world to live in. Adults
are scared which creates a horrible atmosphere for our children to be in. Our children will
forever be affected by this crisis and the social and economic turmoil that has been created.
That is why schools are essential! A school is a safe haven for children. Collegiate School has
been a source of security for students for 125 years. We will continue to provide a safe, secure,
homelike atmosphere for your children whether or not the physical building reopens its doors
in September. One-on-one online learning and Zoom classes have been part of our students’
daily lives since the school closed on March 13 because of the pandemic. Collegiate has
continued to be there for our students and parents and our entire Collegiate family, providing
all with a sense of hope for the future. As I say to my students, knowledge is power! The more
we learn and the more we know about this virus and other diseases the more we will not be
afraid, but we will be smarter and wiser.
We will continue with our math, science, English, history, and language courses online, in
person, or in blended or hybrid setups and we will strive to do our best under difficult but not
We are proud to be Collegians. Continue your academic journey at Collegiate because we are

Collegiate School's proximity to New York City gives us the ability for fun and fascinating field trips. The school van, security advisor and a short ride through the tunnel or over the bridge provides our students with priceless trips to see the One World Observatory, Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan Museum, New York Public Library, Bodies Exhibit, Grant's Tomb, Statue of Liberty, etc...
Small class sizes also allows for other curriculum-based field trips such as the Bronx Zoo, Turtle Back Zoo, Medieval times, college fairs, separate college tours, movies, plays, planetariums, parks...
Many in-school assemblies have included programs featuring Chinese acrobats, Rain Forest Animals, African Dancers, chick incubation and hatching, and a Skylab planetarium.
The sky's the limit when field trips are involved here at Collegiate. Hands-on learning and first-time experiences - an outstanding way to learn!
