An independent, Nursery through Grade 12 coeducational day school, Trevor Day School educates college-bound students to achieve academic and personal excellence in an inquiry-driven, idea-rich community. Trevor celebrates diversity of thought, experiences, and culture; promotes compassion, collaboration, courage, and creativity; and develops in children a recognition of their own unique potential as lifelong learners and leaders who act as responsible global citizens.
We believe it is our responsibility to invoke the good genius that exists in each and every child. Trevor works with parents to cultivate these inherent gifts, and in turn, develop a deep intellectual foundation in your children. We do so by committing ourselves to inquiry-based learning, guided by devoted teachers who model collaboration, intellectual passion, and adaptability.
Trevors school architecture embodies this commitment to children. Student-centered Common spaces define the Trevor experience. Here, teachers and students collaborate in a dynamic manner, and together, navigate a classic curriculum that leads to academic mastery, innovative thinking, and a global perspective. Our new Upper School campus on East 95th Street, opening in 2014-15, and our soon-to-be renovated Lower School on West 88th Street are optimal educational environments that exemplify our schools mission to place students at the center of their learning.
Our goal is to challenge students to make meaning of what they are learning, and to guide them to become self-advocating, accepting, and aware thinkers. At Trevor, students make connections across disciplines, transcend academic boundaries, and become innovative problem-solvers who go forth to change the world. We empower students to take charge of their own learning and ask the tough questions that lead to true understanding.
