On the first day of school this year, 368 scholars woke up, got dressed, moved into their home learning space, and joined their classes virtually. With the decision to move to an online learning platform, many additional decisions would follow about how Collegiate would implement this new way of learning.

As we are starting the 2020-2021 school year in the midst of uncertainty, there is no shortage of “new” in this season. New schedules, new virtual classes, and new people. One of Collegiate’s newest faces, Dorian Moore, is no stranger to our school, although he is new to being on staff at Collegiate. Moore graduated from CSM in 2015 and found his way back to the Collegiate campus last spring semester as a student teacher for our athletic program. Following his graduation from The University of Memphis with a Bachelors of Science in Education, he joined the Collegiate community as an intern for the new school year.
With the spring semester at Collegiate coming to a close, a few of our students and alumni have taken the time to reflect on the past month and the effect online learning and social distancing has had on them. Though plans have changed and the semester looks different than we thought it would, we can still live in the truth that God is working all things together for our good and His glory (Romans 8:28). In this month’s newsletter Kieraney, CSM Class of 2016, shares her experience and a vision of hope for the CSM Class of 2020.
On March 23, faculty, staff, and scholars at Collegiate made the move from Faxon Avenue to individual homes to continue the semester online. While things look different for now, we are still dedicated to our mission of preparing young ladies and gentlemen for college success within a highly structured, nurturing, Christian environment. In this month's newsletter, Collegiate’s Principal, Mr. Grimm, reflects on the importance of online learning and how Collegiate is striving to stay committed to the success of every scholar.
February is Black History Month, and at Collegiate we celebrate our scholars’ diverse cultural and racial backgrounds as part of our unique and powerful school culture. To study Black History, earlier this month a group of CSM high school scholars visited the National Memorial of Peace and Justice and The Legacy Museum in Montgomery, Alabama.
