  • Employer Description

    Collegium Charter School is a tuition-free, independent K-12 public school offering families a choice for their children’s elementary and secondary education.

    Collegium Charter School was founded in January of 1999 by a dedicated group of West Chester residents led by Bill Winters, Anne Rich, and Beth Jones. The founders’ goal was to open a school that provided an educational choice for families offering strong academics as well as programs not readily available in the local school districts. On September 29, 1999 the school opened with 39 students in kindergarten through sixth grade attending on its first day. The second year saw tremendous growth; over 500 students enrolled in kindergarten through seventh grades. Current enrollment tops 2800 students in grades K-12. Collegium has six school buildings in Exton’s Oaklands Corporate Center. Learn more about us...
