Boarding and Day Programs for Boys & Girls in Grades 4-9:High-Quality Academics:
Of the many things we are to children, we are first an academic school. Our traditional core curriculum, enriched by hands-on projects and activities, focuses on the acquisition of solid academic skills. Small classes allow for attention and instruction that challenge each child according to his or her ability. We have high expectations for students.

The arts is an area of exceptional strength, reflecting our longstanding belief in the importance for children of personal expression. We also offer an ESL program for international students, robust library and computer resources, and a Learning Lab for academic support.

Our curriculum conforms to national standards. We are deliberate in helping students develop a solid base of skills and coursework that will be transferable to their next school. The organization of the curriculum varies according to grade level. Students in 4th, 5th, and 6th grades meet in homerooms and are taught by a team of two teachers. The academPhoto of Private Boarding School in New York Stateic program in 7th, 8th, and 9th grades is departmentalized, with core subjects meeting five times weekly.

Standardized tests of the Educational Records Bureau (ERBs) provide objective measures of academic achievement. Formal written evaluations from teachers about each child’s progress are sent to parents at mid-year and in June. Informal communication with parents by mail, email, and telephone is routine.

On an as-needed basis, a separate small-group English class may be created to address the needs of students with learning disabilities who require a modified curriculum. The goal of this class is to develop students' skills so they can return to mainstream classes and achieve success.
