5 Ways CSM Supports Our Alumni

As our community of Collegiate Alumni grows, we have been growing our Alumni Support Team. We want to make sure that every Collegiate grad has the support they need to finish college, find employment, and ultimately launch their professional lives.

Sports Return to Collegiate

After a multi-year hiatus, Collegiate proudly announced the return of interscholastic competitive sports to the CSM community for the 2021-2022 school year.

Two CSM Scholars Receive QuestBridge Full Ride Scholarship

Every year, CSM seniors are encouraged to apply to at least two dream colleges. Sometimes, those big dreams produce big scholarships, as they did for David and Jessica, CSM seniors who earned full rides to their dream colleges through the QuestBridge National College Match program. Next fall, David will head to Boston College and Jessica will make her way to The University of Chicago.

Learn Together. Serve Together. Grow Together.

In October, Collegiate scholars, faculty, and staff left the classroom for a day to serve all over the city of Memphis for Collegiate’s third annual Day of Service. Each year, the Collegiate community volunteers at places like New Hope Christian Academy, The Heights CDC, the Second Baptist Pumpkin Patch, and other organizations and areas in the community. The CSM Day of Service is intended to expose scholars to God’s work in the city of Memphis and give each scholar an opportunity to participate in that work. Our desire is for God to bring the Collegiate community closer together through this service experience, and for our scholars to develop a life-long love of serving others.

CSM Introduces New Literature Courses

Students across the globe have reentered classrooms for the 2021-2022 school year. At Collegiate, we are working, learning, growing, and serving together each and every day. Scholars have been able to reconnect with their friends and re-engage in the transformative process of learning at CSM. In addition to returning to in-person learning, CSM has made exciting changes in the high school literature curriculum.

Student Government Association Making its Way Back to CSM

Despite the wide variety of existing extracurricular activities for student involvement at Collegiate, a Student Government Association (SGA) hasn't been active in over a decade. We are excited to announce the return of SGA to CSM. The Student Government Association aims to bring something new to The Collegiate School of Memphis by encouraging scholars to engage more with the Collegiate leadership and to strengthen their own leadership potential.

What does virtual learning look like at Collegiate?

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.

A Fresh Perspective on the Collegiate Community

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.

Therefore We Do Not Lose Heart

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).
