Millbrook's 800-acre campus is expansive yet intimate, traditional yet contemporary. The tranquil setting inspires life-changing ideas, while the energy and resources of nearby New York City are a natural extension of our classrooms. We are in the midst of the bountiful Hudson Valley, yet the commuter rail to NYC is just 5 miles from campus.
Hoosac has a beautiful 350 acre campus in upstate New York.  Just 3 hours by car or Amtrak from Manhattan or a short ride to Albany, NY for excellent shopping and a variety of cultural events.
SEM students can express their creative side in the skylit art room, or the digital art and photography classroom. Musical expression finds space in either ensemble, glee club or SEMACHORDS, our acapella group. We also have a fall and spring play in our black box theater and host the ESU Shakespeare competition.
As an institution that is mission-driven and intentional in its structure and purpose, The Knox School created its academic program to provide capable students with opportunities to excel within a liberal arts program that are infused with artistic and athletic pursuits.
Many of our school projects take place in the field, like this marine biology lesson in the Galapagos Islands.
