In their free time, students follow their own pursuits: the Student Activities Center, library, gym, music building, athletic fields, and art studio buzz with activity. These activities build strong bonds among boarding and day students, who often come early, stay late, and frequently join in dorm activities.

Throughout the day, in and beyond the classroom, all our students benefit from the presence and guidance of faculty, many of whom live on campus with their families.

The School for Strings, New York
Courses / Programs
Located in Manhattan, New York, The School for Strings has been New York’s premiere Suzuki-based music school since 1970, providing outstanding instrumental instruction in violin, cello, piano and fiddle to thousands of children and teenagers. In agreement with Dr. Shinichi Suzuki’s ideas, the School’s philosophy is that through the study of music, all children can achieve beyond their expectations.

Dr. Suzuki's educational precepts are based on his conviction that every child can be educated and the corollary assumption that every child will be educated. Success is built into his approach, both in the manner of teaching and in the choice of repertoire contained in the volumes of the Suzuki Violin, Cello and Piano Schools.

Children learn the fundamentals of classical music: rhythm, melody, harmony, tempo, dynamics and articulation. By fostering close collaboration between parents, teachers, and students, we aim to build the love of music, self-confidence, discipline and outstanding achievement in every student. In Suzuki study therefore, children learn to play their instrument at first by ear, learning the music they are to play by extensive listening to recordings of each piece.
Suzuki-based instrumental instruction in violin, cello, piano and fiddle for children and teenagers:

* Early Childhood Program for one to four year olds
* Beginner / First Year Program
* Early Level
* Intermediate Level
* Upper Intermediate Level
* Advanced Level
* Individual Lessons
* Group Playing
* Musicianship Class
* Theory Course
* Orchestra Class (string students)

Geneva School of Manhattan
Courses / Programs
Located in the heart of New York City on the west side of Manhattan, The Geneva School of Manhattan is a preschool to eigth grade coeducational school offering a classical, Christian education. We provide preschool with French language immersion, kindergarten, lower and upper school programs. Founded in 1966 the school has provided a rich and rigorous curriculum within the framework of Christian beliefs since the beginning.

Classical education has worked best for centuries because it corresponds to the way in which young minds develop, giving students the confidence to excel in any field that they choose. The classical curriculum allows students to accumulate knowledge earlier than would be accomplished in most other educational formats.

The classical education trivium (literally “three roads”) begins in the grammar phase, providing the building blocks of the classical foundation. This is followed by the dialectic phase where students begin to think critically about the facts they’ve learned. In the final phase, the rhetoric phase, students develop exceptional writing and oratory abilities. Our graduates have been accepted to the top high schools in New York City.
Co-Ed Programs from Pre-K through 8th Grade:
