Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School

5 W 93rd St, New York, NY 10025

Founded as a preparatory school for Columbia College and under the direction of the university for 100 years, this school rose to high prominence in the mid-19th century under Dr. Charles Anthon, America's earliest classical scholar. Today, the school is an independent institution with a board of trustees. The curriculum prepares graduates for leading colleges throughout the country. Elective courses are available in English, social sciences, science, math, art, film, drama and music. Although CGPS offers them in most disciplines, Advanced Placement courses are not necessarily the school's most demanding classes. A three-year science research program allows students to explore scientific and mathematical topics in depth, and selected seniors participate in a college-level seminar on global issues. Students perform at least 60 hours of community service in grades 9-12.
