At The College School, we believe in the transformative power of experiential learning.

With a commitment to academic excellence and hands-on exploration, The College School fosters a vibrant learning community where students not only acquire knowledge but also apply it in real-world contexts, preparing them to thrive in an ever-evolving global landscape. Grounded in principles of curiosity, creativity, and collaboration, we inspire a lifelong love of learning and empower our students to make meaningful contributions to society.

Students at TCS 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.

“TCS has far exceeded my expectations in providing an education for my children. While there are more hands-on, experiential learning opportunities, it’s the way my children are taught to view the world that leaves the deepest impression. My children have learned more than just academics. They’ve learned life skills that they’ll carry with them well into adulthood.”

Happy first day of summer vacation! #60YearsOfAdventuringTogether #SchoolIsGreat #WhosReadyForVacation
A colossal THANK YOU to all of our volunteers who made our End-of-Year Carnival in celebration of our 60th Anniversary such a wonderful event! We could not have done it without the support of our student and parent/guardian volunteers. And of course…to our faculty and staff who always step in to help and sometimes wittingly get doused with water. 🎟️🤡#60YearsOfAdventuringTogether #60YearsOfCommunity
