Academic Program

The Lower School curriculum is designed to begin to prepare students for future academic and life challenges via a purposeful and carefully sequenced program. A key element of the academic program is customization. Our program is not one-size-fits-all. Both in reading and math, we are committed to keeping each student both supported and challenged regardless of their level. Students have the opportunity to advance more quickly through our math program if they exhibit the need to do so to remain engaged.



The Collegiate community is invited to a welcome party for new Head of School Nathan Washer and his family, who have recently moved to Wichita.  Come to the Upper School Commons on Thursday, July 25 anytime from 4 - 7 p.m. for snacks and opportunities to get to know Nathan and the Washer family.  There will be games, food, and fun for the whole family!

Wichita Collegiate School is very pleased to welcome Nathan Washer as our new Head of School.  Mr. Washer succeeded Tom Davis, who retired in May after 19 years as Collegiate’s Head of School and 13 years on the Board of Trustees.  Mr. Washer is the seventh Head of School since Collegiate’s founding in 1963.
