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.
Collegiate is the best independent school in kentucky. It has great sports, as well as academics and arts. Small Classes, Great Minds.
