I am a student at Collegiate in the 6th grade and I love it. They offer lots of different sports and school activities. The teachers are also very nice and will help you if your slipping.

Best bang for your buck in Louisville. We left the Catholic school system and what a great decision it was. The level of academics and the social interaction is unbelievable.

I am not a parent..i'm a 9th grader..I attended this school in 7th gr..and it was very clique-ish. If you weren't in a certain economic group, you didn't count. Collegiate students are not allowed to be teenagers. You have 7 1/2 hours of school + 4-5 hours of homework. This school was not a good solution. If you want your children to have no life outside school, Collegiate is a perfect fit.

Parents and alumni are extremely involved in this 90 year old college prepatory school. Teachers are committed to providing the finest resources and creativity to enhance each child's academic progress. Nurturing, yet demanding. No football, but great at field hockey, basketball, lacrosse. Fantsatic enviornment for math, sciences and language arts. Children are confident and built with charachter from K-12.

The elementary school is very lacking. With 2 kids in the school we have learned not to complain, or your child will suffer. No diversity, but they like it that way. Academics are fair, but not always challenging. No language program except for preschool-like song singing.Lots of teasing and bullying going on. the parents assoc. is very clicky, and if you are not 'old Louisville', then forget it. We are still there only because we have not found a better solution yet.

I would have to say Collegiate is the top school in the state. For a number of reasons. The test score from Collegiate students speak for themselves. It is just a great all round school. The teacher at Collegiate are the top in their field, the parent involvement is outstanding and if you want your child to succeed at the next level of study Collegiate will give them a very solid head start.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
