Student Life

The Tindley student experience has been carefully designed to instill in each of our students a scholar identity.

“College or Die.” These words, emblazoned on our hallway in giant letters, state in no uncertain terms our singular mission: To do whatever it takes to prepare each and every scholar for admittance into a highly selective college or university.

The Tindley Uniform. Tindley requires all scholars to adhere to a strict code of conduct, and it starts with the Tindley uniform. The uniform eliminates potential dress-related distractions while encouraging scholars to view themselves and their peers 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 scholars were in a single-gender environment, grades 6-10 were segregated into single-sex classes.

These measures were to make sure each scholar knows they are not just ordinary middle or high school scholars, but rather serious scholars destined for academic success.
