Student Experience


The school encourages its students to participate in activities that reinforce their Millbrook academic program. Among these might be international travel and language study, outdoor adventures, scientific study, visual and performing arts programs, and athletics.
Millbrook students have participated in: American Field Service, Youth for Understanding, World Horizons, Interlochen, Visions International, Where There Be Dragons, Teton Science School, World Learning, The School for Field Studies, Putney Student Travel, Outward Bound, Carnegie Mellon Summer Pre-College Program for Theater and Acting, Rustic Pathways, Trails Wilderness, Deer Hill Expeditions, ACS British Studies, Broadreach, and Academic Study Associates at Stanford and Oxford. 
How about a trip with one of your teachers? We've done that, too. Most recently, Millbrook faculty members have sponsored scientific data-collecting trips at the Isand School and in the mountains of Mongolia, language-immersion visits to France, service trips to India and Guatemala, and cultural education visits to Cambodia. Even the baseball and lacrosse teams have traveled south during spring break to warm up for the coming season.
Of course, right here on campus there are activities every weekend - from autumn festivals to spring weekends full of games and musical entertainment, there is always something going on. Throughout the year, weekends are sprinkled with shopping trips to the Galleria Mall in Poughkeepsie, outings to nearby towns like Millerton, NY, special movie showings, and much more.
