Collegiate was founded downtown as a girls' school. The coeducational Collegiate Country Day School was established in 1953 as a separate division on a campus 10 miles from the original Collegiate Town School. In 1960, the schools consolidated and now occupy a 55-acre campus. At one time divided into girls' and boys' schools, Collegiate reorganized in 1986 to form a coeducational lower school (grades K-4) and coordinate upper levels (grades 5-12), with boys' and girls' divisions operating on the same campus. A 1986 restructuring resulted in full coeducation. Classes in the lower and upper schools are coed, while boys and girls in the middle school (grades 5-8) attend same-sex academic classes. Math, science, foreign languages, art, music, physical education, computer literacy and economics are required elements of the curriculum. Collegiate offers a global economics course in conjunction with the University of Richmond; in addition, a summer economics institute involving work at companies in the community is available. A strong sports program serves boys and girls in grades 7-12. Collegiate maintains a 156-acre athletic expanse five miles west of its main campus.
