Collegiate Academy is a college preparatory high school serving students in grades nine through 12. Challenging and relevant, Collegiate's comprehensive curriculum prepares students for college and the world of work in a global economy.
Students benefit from a broad offering of Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors courses, as well as Career Academy courses that provide pathways in technology, science, engineering, law and communication arts. Collegiate AP offerings include AP Computer Science, a rarity among area high schools because of its rigor. The Collegiate Early College allows highly motivated students starting in the ninth grade the opportunity to take college courses and earn a maximum of two years college credit as they complete their diploma. Collegiate boasts high graduation and college acceptance rates. Of the nearly 300 seniors enrolled last year, 92 percent graduated and a majority of graduates were accepted to college.
Collegiate has won numerous honors for its efforts to provide college-going opportunities for all students including an EPIC Award for making significant gains with students and the College Board Inspiration Award for improving access to higher education.
