Campus & Dining

Beautiful 65-acre campus

Located on a beautiful 65-acre campus in the heart of Locust Valley, facilities include the Dolan Center, which houses a state-of-the-art 400-seat theater, art studios and our dining hall; separate buildings for Upper, Middle, Lower schools and the Little Friends Infant & Toddler Center; the Athletic Center with adjacent fields for soccer, field hockey, baseball, softball, football and track, as well as tennis courts; and the three-story, modern Kumar Wang Learning Commons that houses more than 50,000 volumes, a web-based catalog system, e-readers and laptop loan program.

Our Early Childhood Center is nestled in the warm and inviting Victorian-style Withington House and our Lower School was completely renovated in the spring of 2010 with touch-sensitive SmartBoards in every classroom.

We offer a campus-wide wireless network, various computer labs, a renovated gymnasium, field house (featuring brand-new locker room facilities) and extensive athletic fields.
