Classrooms, offices, auditorium, gymnasium,  and cafeteria are all located in the primary school building.
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.
Girls triple dormitory. Optional twin or single room is also available for students at an extra cost.
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.
The athletic program emphasizes teamwork, fitness, and the development of specific skills. All students participate in each of the three seasons. Interscholastic teams compete in soccer, cross-country, basketball, softball, lacrosse, tennis, and Ultimate Frisbee.
North Country School's 200-acre campus is located in the Adirondack Mountains near Lake Placid, New York, a popular resort town and the site of two Winter Olympic Games.  Many of our buildings use solar energy and biomass heating to help reduce the school's carbon footprint and to teach and model responsible and sustainable living practices.
Kildonan using a multisensory approach to learning, which often involves group work.
Many of our school projects take place in the field, like this marine biology lesson in the Galapagos Islands.
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.
Art with Friends
