From The Masters School

Set on 96 picturesque acres overlooking the Hudson River, The Masters School is a leading day and boarding school that engages 5th–12th grade students with a challenging academic program in a welcoming learning environment. We offer five- and seven-day boarding options for upper school students.

Our renowned seminar-style learning approach produces independent thinkers who graduate prepared for college, career and life. Students find their passion on the athletic field, in the studio and on the stage. Day and boarding students benefit from our vibrant 24/7 campus, globally diverse community, and accessible residential faculty.

The Masters School community takes advantage of its access to the tri-state area and proximity to the cultural and educational magnet that is New York City.

Attend an upcoming admission event to learn about our day and five- and seven-day boarding programs. Day school applications are due December 15, 2021, and boarding applications are due January 5, 2022.
