The High School Experience

We encourage independent thought. Our students rise to the challenge.

We design curriculum that challenges every student

to assess their strengths and weaknesses and push beyond their comfort zones. The freedom to grow while being challenged is what makes our graduates so confident and successful.

The student interested in environmental science may have a talent for language or love sports. A senior heading to a large university may be fascinated with literature yet enjoy advanced calculus class. Poughkeepsie Day School is committed to providing the intellectual freedom and active experiences that enable our students to thrive in the larger world.

Intensive Studies

Our high school program has expanded blocks of class time so students can explore subjects in depth. Both interdisciplinary and core courses are offered in this concentrated time structure to allow for in-depth exploration and meaningful collaborative work.
