Our Vision, Mission and Values

Our Vision

Socially responsible students pursuing passions for a better world.

We are committed to contributing positively to our local and global communities, environmental stewardship, and supporting the well-being, and inclusion of all people. Through the pursuit of passions, students will find their unique purpose in the world.

Our Mission

To inspire and support young people for meaningful lives.

Collingwood’s personalized and inclusive approach fosters academic excellence and well-being as our students explore opportunities across the four strands--academics, athletics, arts and service learning. We value experiential learning, collaboration, character development, and problem solving across disciplines. Our graduates will join the global community as critical thinkers who are resilient, socially conscious and prepared to make the most of their opportunities.

Our Values

We live our values of courage, curiosity and community to be in service of others: 

Courage

To be a leader, one must have courage. This is how we build integrity, confidence, resilience and respect for self and others. 

Stepping forward or speaking out to create an environment that values the uniqueness of others, takes courage. 

Our graduates will use their courage as they rise to meet challenges throughout their lives and seek to make a better future for the world.

Curiosity

Curiosity drives passion for life-long learning. This passion, in turn, drives innovation and collaboration. 

To inspire curiosity, we push beyond the core curriculum to ensure our students are engaged in an education that is transformative. 

Community

In our community, inclusion is a belief and approach where our students, families, alumni, faculty and staff, work together to feel a sense of belonging. 

The diversity of our family is a strength.  Inclusivity is a community-wide effort and we value listening, patience, and empathy. 

We express our belief in community mindedness through our commitment to leadership, respect for one another, and service to others, both locally and globally.

EDI Position Statement

At Collingwood School, we aim to foster an inclusive and equitable environment that embraces diversity. Through education and courage, we are committed to cultivating a pluralistic environment as we work together to remove barriers so that every person feels welcomed, understood and valued.
