The life at Collegiate Schools is an enormous web of clubs and classes, teachers and teams, projects and presentations. Together, they form that which distinguishes a Collegiate School most: the strength and variety of our community. On the athletics field, through student-led and self-managed clubs and organizations, and a thriving service learning program, our pupils learn to lead, relax, celebrate, and teach one another.
The bonds joining Collegiate School alumni transcend time and geography, with graduates spanning 23 countries, six continents, and more than 50 years. Collegiate Schools in India integrates with the international network of strong, independent alumni by providing opportunities for our graduates to remain connected to the schools and each other. Through hosting and supporting a diverse set of events - ranging from Reunion to informal gatherings, lectures, career panels, and performances - we work to connect our vibrant alumni community in ways that are meaningful to them.
The Alumni Board, comprising nominated representatives, is tasked to manage the affairs of the Alumni Association and further the strategic and philosophical interest of the Collegiate Schools, in India and globally. Through strengthening and promoting the loyalty of Collegiate Schools alumni to their school, the Alumni Board enables graduates to remain engaged with each other and to participate both physically and financially in the life of the school.
We believe that strong links and effective communication between school and parents or guardians are of paramount importance in ensuring that our pupils receive the best possible support during their time at the School.
The Parents Association of the Collegiate Schools is a volunteer organization whose purpose is to promote communication and understanding among parents, staff, and faculty, and to support the work of the school. The Parents Association is an integral part of the Collegiate School community, sponsoring various activities, special events, and fundraising efforts which benefit the schools.
All parents are encouraged to attend Parents Association meetings and events to become involved in the life of the school, and new parents are especially welcomed.
There are many opportunities for parental involvement in Collegiate Schools and in the student's education, one of them being The School Advisory Council (SAC).
The responsibility of the School Advisory Council is to provide parents, citizens, faculty, staff, and students an opportunity to participate in the development of educational priorities, assessment of a school's needs, and identification of local resources.
The functions of SAC are to assist in the preparation and evaluation of the school improvement plan, and to assist in the preparation of the school budget.
Other broad functions of the School Advisory Council include:
Collegiate Schools School Advisory Council (SAC) typically comprises 12 parents, 3 community members, 10 teachers, 3 students, the principal, and 1 support staff.
Collegiate Schools' commitment to the environment can be seen from the physical infrastructure of its schools globally and the day-to-day functions to its faculty and student-led initiatives. The opportunities to make environmentally friendly choices are present all over the school. We know that being good to the world we live in is not only socially responsible, it is good for us, which is why we use eco-friendly supplies and make environmentally conscious decisions about the foods we purchase for the cafeteria.
