Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At The College School, students are engaged and captivated by hands-on learning experiences. Learning through direct experience allows children to actively master skills. Theme studies enhance the core curriculum by allowing students to apply and broaden their knowledge through studying special topics in depth. All areas of the curriculum are integrated into the study of a particular theme.

Our Early Childhood Program (preschool through kindergarten) incorporates the Reggio Philosophy. The school has maintained connections to the core program in Reggio Emilia, Italy for fourteen years. Educators from the U.S. and around the world have visited our school to learn more about how we have incorporated this progressive and exciting early childhood approach into our program.
