Image of Private Day & Boarding School in Westchester County, NY- The Masters School offers one of the only boarding school experiences in the New York metropolitan area. Set amid 96 acres of fields and woodlands overlooking the Hudson River, our students have a scenic and comfortable environment for living and learning. The combination of boarding and day students results in an exceptionally dynamic and diverse community life where students from across the country and around the globe form strong friendships with each other and with day students.

Our Faculty:

Photos of The Masters School, New YorkMore than 70 percent of our faculty members hold advanced degrees from leading universities. They interact with students all day in a variety of roles—as instructors, coaches, advisors, and dorm parents—and thus have a true understanding of each student’s interests, talents, and goals.

Our faculty works hard to build academic programs that encourage intellectual curiosity, social responsibility, and personal fulfillment. The goal is to equip our students with the tools to function effectively in the world and promote a life-long love of learning.

Community Life:
Our 24/7 community gives students opportunities for growth, friendship, entertainment, and fun. Athletic competitions, art exhibits, and music and dramatic performances are just some of the events that take place at The Masters School. 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.

Co-Curricular Activities:

Clubs and Organizations:
From fiction writing to a cappella singing to hiking and camping trips, students have exciting opportunities to explore their passions and develop new ones. With more than 30 organizations to choose from, students share their interests and advance worthy causes.

True to our belief in diversity and collaboration, most groups are co-led by a male and female student. Student activities add immense energy to campus life, and foster leadership and organizational skills—vital assets for life in college and beyond.
