Headmaster's Letter

George Higgins, HeadmasterCongratulations on your discovery of The Beekman School!  We have been providing a wealth of opportunities within the halls and classrooms of our townhouse school for 90 years.  Our program is tailored to nurture the development of the individual, and to that end, our school provides students with the flexibility and support to realize their academic goals.  We seek an environment in which members of a diverse student body can live and learn together in ways that protect both personal freedom and community standards.

Beekman students, parents and faculty work together, each playing an active role in shaping the students’ education.  Our classrooms provide an incomparable setting for individual growth and are alive with the exchange of knowledge.  A Beekman education rewards its graduates with a broad awareness of the world around them and of their place within it; our school sets the stage for a lifetime of learning.

Enjoy your online visit, and think about coming to see us in person.  While our website is rich in information, there is no substitute for visiting our school, where you can witness firsthand the remarkable opportunities here.  Everyone at Beekman is looking forward to welcoming you.

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.
