City Park Collegiate is a high school in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, located in the City Park neighbourhood. The alternative education program at City Park Collegiate Institute (CPCI) was established in 1986 to meet the needs of students having difficulty in the regular school setting. In 2003–2004, the timetable was expanded to a fully modified program. This program offered modified versions of compulsory high school courses along with many regular-level, hands-on electives. An alternative program is still offered for those students who require it. The result is programming for students in Grades 8 to 12 designed to prepare them for the world of work or help them gain entry into a number of SIAST[clarification needed] courses.

City Park Collegiate served as a mainstream high school from its opening in the 1930s to 1984 when it closed as a result of the opening of Marion M. Graham Collegiate in the city's Silverwood neighborhood. The school's former athletic program's teams were known as the Cowboys.
