@ Collegiate Prep Elementary School (975 Pickard Drive)


Pre-K 4 through fifth-grade scholars learn at an accelerated pace and build their leadership skills through programs such as Gifted and Talented Challenge Labs, classroom ambassadors and AVID. AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) is implemented at every grade level. Scholars acquire academic traits that prepare them for success in later grades, including organization, study skills and communication. This program is part of the district’s Collegiate Pathway; scholars who complete the pathway (Collegiate Prep, Collegiate Academy Middle School, and Collegiate High School) graduate with an associate degree. Pre-K 4 tuition costs $550 per month ($275 for current CHISD employees) or is free for those who qualify. Kindergarten through fifth-grade scholars attend for free.
