Now well into its second century, Allendale Columbia is a leading independent, diverse coed school for students in Nursery through Grade 12. Here, learning goes far beyond books and tests. We have the freedom to dig deeper so students can question more, discuss, debate, and question again. As a result, our students develop critical thinking skills and become effective problem solvers. Our faculty members use their independence and experience to connect knowledge to real life so our students can make more sense of the world–and their place in it. It all adds up to a different school of thought: high expectations and relevant experiences that prepare students to succeed in a global community.
The Allendale Columbia School Community affirms and celebrates its members as global citizens who seek to build compassionate connections rooted in social justice. We promote a strong ethic of social responsibility in our students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumni. We strive to build a diverse community that promotes equity and justice for all. We foster an environment that reflects the diverse experiences and perspectives present in the larger world. We embrace the National Association o...f Independent Schools’ Principles of Good Practice for Equity and Justice as a framework for inclusion. We commit to continuous, intentional evaluation of our practices to cultivate a culture of belonging, renewed and reimagined by the collective community.
