Founded in 1764, Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School (CGPS) is one of the nation’s oldest private schools and the largest independent school in Manhattan. CGPS offers a rigorous and comprehensive college preparatory education to more than 1,300 students in Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12. Relaxed, caring, and more academically diverse than many of its peer New York City independent schools, CGPS seeks to inspire and support students in an atmosphere that is cooperative rather than intensely competitive.
