About Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School

Preschool, Elementary, Middle, High School

At Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School, our mission is to balance a rigorous comprehensive college preparatory curriculum with healthy social and emotional development. Our students thrive in a supportive and warm environment in which it is safe to learn, reflect and commit to academic achievement and social responsibility. The opportunities available at CGPS are as diverse as our student body, which is made up of children with a wide range of talents, interests, and backgrounds.

COVID-19 Admission Adjustments

How are you adjusting your admission process? All Assessments and Interviews are virtual, we have made all testing optional and our Open Houses and Tours will remain virtual for the year. Admission events are recorded and sent to parents as well.

Are you conducting tours/open houses? Virtual events are planned for the admission season.

Are both parents expected to attend tours/presentations? yes

What is expected of families? All parents are expected to schedule a parent interview, which will be conducted via Zoom; if it is a 2-parent home, we expect both parents to attend but we do understand it can't always happen.
All students will have a one-on-one Zoom Interview and requirements for the Zoom Meeting will be emailed prior to the interview.


Nothing from May 1, 2021 to May 1, 2023.
