NEW DIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP FOR STUDENTS ENTERING FOURTH-SEVENTH GRADES AT THE COLLEGE SCHOOL

Since The College School was established in 1963, we have built a community where all voices are valued and differences are celebrated.

Diversity comes in all forms and encompasses race, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, and more. The intersectionality of these identities is what makes each of us unique.

To continue our work of building a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive community, The College School has established a new Upper Division Diversity Scholarship, focusing specifically on racial diversity.

In racially diverse classrooms, students appreciate and consider different perspectives, making connections from their own lives to the lives of their peers. We know that racial diversity fosters awareness and empathy where our students learn to take on the world through advocacy, compassion, and global understanding.

Beginning in the 2021-2022 school year, the award for the scholarship includes up to 100% of fees and tuition costs for the students’ time at TCS.
