WCS Vision Statement  

   Adopted 10/2020

At Collegiate, we exist to inspire all students to be the best versions of themselves. We do this through transformative education. One grounded in academic excellence, inside an inclusive community. Students and families choose a Collegiate education for an exceptional academic experience that is authentic, relevant, and forward-thinking; for a commitment to character development that is embedded in all aspects of student life; for our strong college and university outcomes; and because we intentionally prepare students for success.

At the core of our work with young people is knowing them well. We take great pride in knowing each student and his or her journey from their first days on campus to their walk across the commencement stage. Our talented and dedicated faculty serve as teachers, coaches, and advisors, understanding students through each of these lenses and inspiring their curiosity, their character, and their commitment to reaching their full potential every day.

It is my pleasure to represent the Wichita Collegiate community, and I invite you to explore our school either virtually or in person by contacting our admission office. We would welcome the chance to share with you the compelling blend of academic and community excellence that is present at our school.
