Who we are:


We are Topeka’s only independent college preparatory school, placing students at the center of the learning experience and passionately developing the next generation of leaders equipped with skills for life.

Our mission is to prepare students for advanced education, successful careers and responsible citizenship through a commitment to academic excellence and humanitarian ideals.

What we do:


Topeka Collegiate provides an agile learning environment that teaches to each student, helping them develop confidence, critical thinking skills, a commitment to community service and a love of learning that will benefit them for life. 

Year after year, Topeka Collegiate students' standardized test scores place them among the highest-achieving independent school students in the nation. This is no surprise, as teachers are given the freedom to tailor their classroom curriculum to the individual needs of their students. Teachers work with parents to ensure that students are academically challenged and nurtured to reach their full potential.       

Our curriculum emphasizes math, science, history, reading, writing and Spanish. Specialists teach science, Spanish, computer science, music, art and physical education in all grades.

We honor learning and achievement at Topeka Collegiate. Children come here to receive an education that nurtures natural curiosity, cultivates a sense of personal commitment to service and develops principles of integrity, honesty, and a sense of fairness and justice.

Why we do it:


We are cultivating the next generation of leadership. Topeka Collegiate prepares students to be leaders through character development, a commitment to equity and justice, social engagement and global citizenry.

Our students develop competencies not just for their next educational step, but for a life-long love for learning.

Children leave Topeka Collegiate as young men and women who have a love of learning that will stay with them for their entire lives. Graduates are known for their broad and varied interests, deep knowledge base and versatile skill sets. They are communicators, risk takers and critical thinkers.


"At the end of the day, we made a decision to invest in and focus on education as a priority for our kids."
