Students at The College School never sit in class and wonder: “When will I use this in real life?”
At The College School, students 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.
Students explore the world through authentic experiences. Along the way, they are part of a close-knit community that allows them to be who they are and to use their voice. It’s no wonder students love coming to school.
At TCS, experiential learning is not separate from a rigorous academic program. Through hands-on projects and real-life experiences, students learn core subjects and critical life lessons. This approach makes learning meaningful and makes lessons stick.
“The College School instilled in me a passion to advocate for nature, be civically engaged, reflect on my experiences, and learn by doing.”
Claire Generous, Class of 2013
