Last Monday, illustrator Joseph Santiago of Saint James Studios and his business partner Yamilca visited their son's fifth grade Core class with Stefanie Trepper to give a lesson on a crucial aspect of the filmmaking process: storyboarding.
The connections made at Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School last a lifetime and are the ties that last beyond graduation years.
CGPS welcomes our alumni to participate in the life of the School by returning to campus year round to visit with beloved teachers, tour our facilities that are always changing to meet the needs of today’s students and their curricular interests, and see friends at our Annual Reunion events held each spring.
Please enjoy our new website which is full of news and information about the vibrant life at CGPS. We hope that it gives you a sense of the One School community fostered at CGPS which encourages the bold ideas, big questions and smart risks of our students.
We want your relationship with CGPS to be meaningful throughout your life which means keeping in touch with us! Please use the "Contact Us" form found on this page often—we are here to keep you up-to-date with old friends and teachers, send photos and updates of moments you would like to share, and connect you with other alumni in your professional fields. We look forward to hearing from you!
Thank you for your continued support of CGPS!

2020 Alumni Reunion cancellation
With the developing news of COVID-19 and the announcement that Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School closed early, we are writing to inform you that we have decided to cancel the 2020 CGPS Reunion scheduled for April 25 and are postponing the event until a later date. As is the case with our peer New York City independent schools, CGPS is approaching the planning of large-gathering events with an abundance of caution.
