Millbrook School Photo - Millbrook's 800-acre campus is expansive yet intimate, traditional yet contemporary.

We are in the midst of the bountiful Hudson Valley, yet the commuter rail to NYC is just 5 miles from campus.
The White Mountain School Photo - All students complete an independent project through our LASR program. LASR stands for Leadership, Arts, Service, and Research.

Trinity-Pawling School Photo - One of the School`s most distinctive attributes is its signatory Effort System. Each boy at Trinity-Pawling is recognized and assessed in terms of the effort he devotes to a given endeavor. The learning objective inherent in this ethos of effort is to teach young people that the more they invest of themselves the greater their accomplishments will be.
Canterbury School Photo - Canterbury's student to teacher ratio is 11:1. The curriculum is extensive.
