    Stevenson is an independent, innovative, college preparatory day school in New York City that helps talented adolescents whose social-emotional and learning needs have not been met in other settings.


    Stevenson's individually targeted supports help our students cope with the demands of everyday life while completing high school and preparing for college (100% college acceptance rate). Many of the students receive funding for their education from their districts. Tuition can also be tax deductible as a medical expense.

    Though a small school, three themes lie at the center of the Stevenson program, which make it vibrant:

    1) A balanced liberal arts education offering authentic learning experiences in a classroom setting in English, mathematics, history, science, the visual and performing arts, physical education, and yoga.

    2) Lively school activities, including 3-seasons of sports teams for boys and girls, a literary publication, yearbook, student council, and rock band.

    3) A supportive counseling model that increases academic learning time, featuring daily morning faculty meetings to discuss student progress, 3-daily advisory meetings with students, and additional services by 3 doctoral-level and 2 masters-level clinicians.

    Stevensons quest for innovation energizes our students, administration, faculty, programming, partnerships, and facilities. We offer customized education within the context of a school environment and a centered, mindful approach to adolescent development. We believe in the full integration of social-emotional and academic learning, so students can develop 21st Century skills that raise self-efficacy, self-esteem, and self-concept. Stevenson uncovers and enhances the excellence within each student that create opportunities for college, career, and life.

    With rolling admission, we have opportunities available for educational placement for now, July, and September. Families and professionals, please contact us at 212.787.6400 to start the conversation.
