Allendale Columbia School

519 Allens Creek Rd, Rochester, NY 14618

The Columbia School for girls, established in 1890, and the Allendale School for boys, established in 1926, merged in 1971 to form the current coeducational school. Students enroll from the urban, suburban and rural areas of Rochester. The school has four main divisions: preprimary (nursery and prekindergarten), lower school (grades K-5), middle school (grades 6-8) and upper school (grades 9-12). Although Allendale Columbia is a day school, a limited number of international students board with host families. Conducted in a small-class setting, the liberal arts curriculum emphasizes college preparation. Beginning in the lower school, students receive instruction from specialists in foreign language and science. In addition to the traditional subjects, the school offers art, music, library and computer classes. A majority of seniors take at least one Advanced Placement course (AP classes are available in every major discipline), and qualified seniors design, pursue and receive credit for community- or career-oriented off-campus internships in the last month of school. Interscholastic sports are offered in coordination with the Harley School. All students in grades 9 and 10 elect at least one competitive sport per year.
