After TPS

Secondary School Placement

Over the past decade-plus, we have matriculated and graduated many TPS students at Blair Academy, and they have always arrived well prepared with a keen intellectual curiosity and interest in trying new things. The values that TPS has instilled in its students prepare them to become leaders across Blair’s campus who are deeply invested in our community."

- Peter Curran, Blair Academy, Head of School

What We Do

Knowing Tuxedo Park School’s intimate community and the often long tenure of each student, it should come as no surprise that the Secondary School Placement Process is individualized and personalized involving the student, their family, TPS administrators, advisors, and faculty. It is an exciting time as our students and their families seek a “best match” school. Initial conversations explore the various school options including independent boarding, independent day, parochial, and public to generate and fine-tune a secondary school list which best matches each student’s unique talents, aspirations, and skills.
