Hoosac School was founded in Hoosick, New York in 1889. For over 130 years Hoosac has been enrolling boarders and day students in Forms II-VI (Grades 8-12) and our postgraduate program.
As a coeducational, college preparatory school, Hoosac celebrates each student's individuality in all aspects of their educational life.
Since 1889, Hoosac has maintained and upheld Dr. Tibbits core beliefs about a well-rounded boarding school experience: to educate the whole student, academically, athletically, socially as well as spiritually.
It is Hoosac's mission to develop enthusiastic learners with creative minds and strong moral compasses who are ready to handle college and life with intelligence and grace.
Hoosac is committed to sustaining the small scale preparatory school model in which each student receives an individualized education with attention, care and guidance and is offered the opportunity to grow socially within the Hoosac School community.
