Meet the Office

Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School’s Admission Office team is here to assist you as you work through the application process. Please contact us with any questions you may have.

CGPS is a member of ISAAGNY, NAIS, NYSAIS, the Parents League, the Early Steps Program, AISAP and RIISE. We also partner with TEP The Equity Project, the Boys and Girls Club of America, A Better Chance, the Boys Club of New York, Breakthrough New York, the Oliver Scholars Program, Prep for Prep, REACH Prep and the TEAK Fellowship.

The application process for international students is the same as it is for all applicants. We do not require or accept the TOEFL.  Prospective families must complete the application process on their own, we do not work with international placement agencies. CGPS does not provide housing or homestays.
