Female-only student population. Tindley Collegiate Academy endeavors to serve girls in unprecedented ways, with the larger goal of providing them with an excellent college-preparatory education. Furthermore, we seek to prepare them for the important transition from “girls” into “ladies of excellence.”
“College or Die.” These words state in no uncertain terms our singular mission: To do whatever it takes to prepare each and every student for a scholastic career that leads to admittance into a highly selective college or university.
The Tindley Uniform. Tindley Collegiate requires all students to adhere to a strict code of conduct, and it starts with the Tindley uniform. The uniform eliminates potential dress-related distractions while encouraging students to view themselves as scholars in pursuit of a noble goal.
Single-sex classes. Tindley first implemented single-sex classes in 2004. After observing how much more focused younger students were in a single-gender environment, grades 6-10 were permanently segregated into single-sex classes.
These measures ensure each student knows she is not just an ordinary middle school student, but rather a serious scholar destined for academic success.
