School Problem? Problem Solved: Beekman!

Authored By: 
George Higgins, Headmaster

I speak with a lot of people: on the phone, in interviews, and around town.  They’ve heard bits and pieces about our unique program and want to get the story “straight from the horse’s mouth.”  Given our rolling admissions policy, our philosophy of “interview today start tomorrow,” and our focus on student-centered learning, I am frequently asked a number of questions about our student body.

One that I often hear is, “Don’t some of the kids there have problems?”  My answer is always the same: “Absolutely not!”  There are students here who have a particular need that their previous school was unable to accommodate.  Is that a problem?  It might be for others, but not for Beekman.  We’re the most flexible, most individualized, and most accommodating private high school in NYC.

Beekman has been creating personalized academic programs for students with a variety of requests for over 85 years.  Our college prep courses successfully prepare our students in an environment that is academically challenging and socially welcoming.  And when the time comes to start making post-graduation plans, each student works one-on-one with our college guidance counselor.

Take a moment to review our website.  Then, contact us to discuss your particular needs and learn how The Beekman School can provide you with a solution that works!

We are welcoming students to class this fall either via a hybrid in-person/online learning model in NYC or via fully remote, synchronous online classes.
