The College School

Dear Families,

We hope this message finds you and your family healthy and well.  Due to continued State of Delaware and University of Delaware restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, The College School will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year and through August 1, 2020.  It is absolutely our hope that we are able to begin the 2020-2021 school year in early September on our regular schedule.

Our teachers and staff are committed to continue our online schooling program, providing the same virtual structure to keep your children actively engaged in everyday learning. We also plan to proceed with many of our culminating events, highlighting the hard work and success of our students as this school year comes to a close. While these events must be celebrated on a virtual platform, we will work creatively to ensure they are memorable for our students.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during what continues to be a time of uncertainty. We are aware and regret that these operational changes may prove challenging for many of you. We will continue to provide operational updates as they become available.

Please know that we are thinking of your child and family during this difficult time. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
