Student Experience

Our student experience is purposefully designed to be expansive. It is our belief that a balanced education leads to a powerful life, and we are committed to an atmosphere in which each of our students can explore their passions and interests on a profound level every day.

Inside and outside of the classroom, Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School is a beehive of activity. In the Grammar School, children can enjoy their day at school from breakfast with their parents in the cafeteria to an incredible array of after-school options that is unique to CGPS. There are over a hundred club offerings in the Middle School and Prep School that students participate in during the school day, as well as 44 Club, Junior Varsity and Varsity teams from grades 5-12, instrumental and vocal music ensembles, and theater productions. The thoughtful, balanced daily schedule of our students encourages exploration, reflection and excellence.
