The Mission of Wichita Collegiate School is to provide the highest quality education for each student, which will maximize his or her ability to understand and enjoy the complexities of the world and successfully meet the challenges of life.
Collegiate was founded on principles by people with principles. Basic to its core beliefs on educational philosophy, Collegiates founding emphasis was on academic excellence in a college preparatory program, individual attention to and recognition of each student in a low student-teacher ratio environment, and the development of sound personal values necessary for responsible citizenship.
For more than 50 years, Collegiate has remained steadfast in its commitment to the various tenets of our educational process. However, Collegiate has always been a leader in embracing those changes that make learning more effective, more meaningful and more pertinent for our students. Not quick to adopt every new fad in education that comes along, Collegiate faculty realize that todays students are different in some ways from our students of 50 years ago. Through recent scientific studies in brain research, more is known today about how students learn as well as the different ways students can learn, based on their individual strengths. An eye on excellence, an emphasis on academics, and an environment dedicated to the individual student is where Collegiate started, where it is today, and where it will be tomorrow.
