Collegiate’s roadmap to student success includes 16 College Board Advanced Placement courses among four rigorous career academies that encourage self-discovery and a mastery of core academic content: Early College, Information Technology and Engineering, Fine Arts, and Health Sciences.

Our Early College Academy, the first such program at a public charter high school in the city, offers highly motivated students the opportunity to earn up to two years’ college credit before graduation. Today, Early College alumni proudly hold degrees from some of the nation’s most competitive institutions: Princeton. Morehouse. Columbia. William and Mary. Spelman. Carnegie Mellon. Virginia. Maryland. George Washington. UCLA. Georgetown. The list grows year by year.

But a Collegiate education is more than cracking books. Students enjoy a variety of clubs and athletic activities that reinforce the core values of integrity, confidence, persistence and teamwork. From an award-winning robotics team and drama club to the city’s No.1 charter high school football team, Collegiate develops well-rounded scholars ready to succeed at whatever advanced goals they tackle.
