Nestled at the hub of one of the country's most vital arts centers, we offer a challenging curriculum in a small school setting. We provide an education rich in math, science, technology, literature, world history and current events. Students conduct original research, tour museums and explore New York's cultural life. Each grade takes an annual, overnight trip - freshmen participate in Living Environment labs in the wilderness of Upstate New York and upperclassmen visit colleges. Hands-on learning, supportive relationships, small classes, individual attention and regular tutoring are the underpinnings of a program focused on developing the skills required for success in college.
