"People often ask us: What does The Beekman School do? Our answer is always, what don´t we do?”

The Beekman School is the only school among NYC independent high schools which offers students such an extensive variety of learning options, delivered in a variety of formats and combinations (including small class size, on-site, at-home, and online tutoring, afterschool support, flexible scheduling, rolling admissions, advanced and remedial courses, test preparation, etc.).

We meet students´ unique needs and objectives, no matter of their level, pace or unique circumstances. Beekman is able to work around a student´s schedule and fluctuating demands by offering any course, at any time, anywhere, all facilitated by our highly-qualified and dedicated faculty.




We've understood students' potential for over 90 years and have been embracing individual differences and harnessing the power of personalized instruction since our founding in 1925. It´s back then that our founder identified that an intimate environment is a key component for quality education. We like to think of our distinctive townhouse setting as one of the secret ingredients for creating strong teacher-student bonds and peer relationships that bring out the best in all students.”


The Beekman Difference

Individual Attention

A focus on the individual through a tailored course of study that helps students advance according to their unique passions and abilities.

Maximum Flexibility

A traditional college preparatory education that matches each student's level and pacing through versatility and student-centered guidance.

Extensive Curriculum

An exceptionally comprehensive program, embodying a vast array of standard academic courses paired with numerous electives.

Remote Learning Isn’t New to Us


For years before the COVID pandemic, we’ve been offering remote and hybrid learning opportunities to meet the individual needs of students with unique circumstances who are unable to come to school.

Our many years of experience helps us successfully navigate the unexpected challenges brought by COVID-19 without compromising the academic success of our students. And while we are constantly embracing and adopting new technology, at the core of our success with remote learning is building deep bonds with our students and getting to know them on a personal level, even with limited in-person interaction.
