Located at 5 West 93rd Street in Manhattan, Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School is a serious grammar and prep school that focuses strongly on the liberal arts, particularly music, drama and art. English, language arts, foreign language instruction, mathematics, the sciences, current and historical social studies, physical education, technology, and the fine arts are all included within the curriculum. The school also believes in, and emphasizes in its students, the need for good character development and strong social responsibility.
Our school is strongly committed to co-education and feels that a relaxed but structured social setting where boys and girls can learn together is the most effective educational environment. The school is also committed to a financial aid program designed to maintain diversity and balance–racial, ethnic and financial–within our school community. Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School has a responsibility to its students, to their parents and society at large to help each child become a well-educated, responsible, caring and productive person. Cultivating our students’ minds, supplying them with a substantial fund of knowledge and providing them with the basis for making sound ethical judgments remain the foundations of the school’s philosophy and mission.
