Private Day & Boarding School in Westchester County, NY

Image of The Masters School, New York The Masters School:
The Masters School is a coed day and boarding school that engages 5th-12th grade students in a rigorous college preparatory curriculum. Located on a majestic 96-acre suburban campus in Dobbs Ferry, we are just 35 minutes from New York City.

The Dobbs Ferry Metro North Train Station is a five minute walk from campus. This means our faculty are able to easily plan class trips to New York City, our dorm parents can spontaneously design a day trip over the weekend without worrying about transportation, and our Director of Weekend Activities has a safe means of transporting students to and from the unlimited number of academic and cultural immersion opportunities in the city.

Dobbs Ferry, a town of some importance during the Revolutionary War, lies on the east bank of the Hudson River in culture-rich Westchester County, 20 miles north of New York City, 100 miles southwest of Hartford, and 200 miles southwest of Boston.

Photo of Private Day & Boarding School in Westchester County, NY Our beautiful 96 green acre campus is nestled up on a hilltop overlooking the Hudson River in the quaint rivertown of Dobbs Ferry, New York. While the safe town of Dobbs Ferry gives our campus the look and feel of an Old New England Boarding School, we are only a mere 30 minute train ride from New York City’s Times Square & Grand Central Station (and only 20 minutes from Columbia University). Truly we have the best of both worlds!

Boarding Life:
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.
