    EF Academy International Boarding Schools offer a transformational high school education that develops students into confident global citizens. Join classmates from 75 countries and chart a future that knows no borders. Our academic philosophy at our private high school in New York is centered on allowing students to explore subjects and courses to help them discover their passion. Encouraging them to pursue their interests is at the root of our university guidance as well.

    Students enjoy a wide range of intriguing options to ensure they are fully engaged at school and ready to succeed at university. Join us for Grades 9 and 10 to benefit from the US High School Diploma from the very beginning. In Grades 11 and 12, we offer 60 different IB classes, which allow students to start earning college credits before graduation, including more than 15 world languages, five sciences, and three arts. For a comprehensive and challenging course of study, students may pursue the full IB Diploma, which develops intellectual curiosity, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving. In addition to your IB Diploma or IB Certificates, all successful students earn a nationally recognized US High School Diploma.

    Our university guidance counselors at EF Academy New York have built relationships with leading universities. Students benefit from guided tours of nearby universities, and representatives from over 100 different North American colleges visit the school throughout the year.

    EF Academy's high school in New York has an outstanding athletic program that includes several varsity sports teams. There are also subject-specific and special interest clubs for students who would like to complement their studies. The activities coordinator plans regular cultural excursions, taking students to Manhattan to visit museums and exhibitions or see a show. Some activities include:

    • Group fitness
    • Theater
    • Varsity sports
    • STEM clubs
    • Community service opportunities

    EF Academy's American high school in New York is tucked in Thornwood's quiet, suburban town. It is characterized by the many pathways, trails, and woodland surrounding its academic and residence buildings.

    Just down the hill from the school is Rose Hill Shopping Center, a small plaza with restaurants and shops. The famous island of Manhattan is less than an hour away. You will have plenty of time to explore the cultural hub of New York City on excursions organized by the school staff.

    Theater students step into the spotlight in our beautiful auditorium, where full-length plays are staged twice a year. Science labs equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and welcoming art studios not only enrich your classes, but they also host science and art clubs after school and are available for you to use for independent study. Complete your school day with a bit of physical activity in our fully equipped gym, dance studio, or basketball courts, or get some fresh air by going on a bike ride around eight kilometers of off-road trails on campus using one of the school's mountain bikes.

    EF Academy is everything you would expect from a world-class boarding school – modern facilities, experienced teachers, and internationally recognized academic programs. But what truly sets us apart is our mission to provide you with a superior education that empowers you to excel.

    As a student at one of our international boarding schools in New York, Pasadena, Torbay, or Oxford, you will grow as a person and develop the skills necessary for success in the globalized 21st century. Studying abroad with classmates from 75 countries will open your eyes to the cultures around you. As you explore different ideas and perspectives in class and during co-curricular activities, you will find that your worldview will expand and that you will become an independent, confident global citizen.

    The international experience, thorough university preparation, and rewarding academic journey you will find at our private high school will open your mind and your world.
