Academic Challenge Education is more than a transfer of knowledge—It is a process in which young people grow as committed and capable learners. In our small classes, teachers form close, positive relationships with their students and challenge them to build vital reading, writing, and computational skills. Students emerge with the ability and confidence to succeed at the highly interactive and intImage of Private Day & Boarding School in New York Stateellectually demanding Harkness tables of the Upper School.

We teach all academic subjects in single gender classrooms in grades six to eight, providing an optimum learning environment for boys and girls. In fifth grade, children join in a highly interactive coeducational learning experience. Beyond the classroom, all students enjoy the social and developmental benefits of a coed campus.

Faculty team-up to teach a comprehensive academic program around a central theme: the ancient world in fifth grade, Hudson River in sixth grade, diversity and identity in seventh grade, and the American experience in eighth grade. They weave together topics in English, history, math, science, technology, and the arts, to create an interdisciplinary dynamic while teaching the reading, writing, and computational skills needed to succeed in the Upper School.

The Upper School:
Classes take place around oval Harkness tables, engaging every student in an intePhotos of The Masters School, New Yorkractive learning experience. Discussions demand daily preparation, participation, and a respect for diverse viewpoints. A wide range of required, elective, and advanced placement courses, give students the intellectual tools and verbal and study skills necessary to succeed in college and in life.

Our co-curricular program enables students to develop talents in many areas from ballet to sculpture, from athletics to filmmaking. Weekends offer exciting options: sports events, dorm challenges, and dances, as well as faculty-led trips to Manhattan.

Students are invited to understand the world’s major faiths, refine their ethical decision making skills, and serve others. An array of community service opportunities enables students to demonstrate their values and grow in insight and compassion.

Art is a common language that unites The Masters School community.

We offer a range of courses and are committed to individual attention that provides a safe environment for beginners—and challenges experienced students to achieve their full potential.

Athletics Program:
The Masters School’s comprehensive and inclusive athletics program teaches lifelong lessons in teamwork, sportsmanship, and the importance of physical fitness. Interscholastic competition fosters cooperation and personal bonds among teammates.

Under the guidance of experienced coaches, our student-athletes grow in physical strength and skill, while they learn what it means to win with grace, concede defeat with honor, and come back with tenacity.

We have dozens of teams so students of all interests and abilities can participate in sports, taste the excitement of competition, and reach new peaks of athletic achievement. The spirited support of fellow students, parents, and faculty is fully felt at sports events.
