Our Lower School program is one that honors the important interconnectedness of the social and academic needs of young children. Each day is filled with activities that build a foundation for academic and social achievement. Low student-to-teacher ratios help create an environment of individualized instruction fostering self-expression, encouraging problem-solving, promoting collaboration, and developing critical thinking skills.

The Wichita Collegiate Lower School is staffed with experienced, supportive teachers who help our students love learning.


An environment of mutual respect, support, and collaboration lays the groundwork for success in the exciting and challenging work that lies ahead for each child. We invite you to learn more about our Lower School.
