About Poughkeepsie Day

Our students are sophisticated thinkers. Our role is to keep them interested.

Our collaborative learning environment, with dedicated faculty open to new ideas and challenges,

provides a springboard for engaged and reflective learners. Our teachers design curriculum with their students in mind, providing many different pathways into a rich, integrated learning experience. We know that (1) fostering individual expression, (2) providing interdisciplinary opportunities and (3) having a steadfast commitment to social and emotional learning feeds a learning environment that will allow our students to thrive.

“Parents tell us that our graduates have all of the necessary academic qualifications to thrive out in the world but more importantly, they hold onto the intrinsic desire to keep learning and doing.” Ben Chant, Head of School
