Employer Description

Millbrook School is a co-ed boarding high school of 320 students, located in the Hudson Valley, New York, about 90 miles north of New York City.  More than 80% of the students and faculty live on campus.  The school's mission is known to all and is genuinely lived through all facets of the curriculum.

Millbrook School educates its students to succeed and serve in college and beyond.  In a community where every student is known and needed, Millbrook prepares its students for college and lives of meaning and consequence by instilling the values of respect, integrity, stewardship, service and curiosity.

We promote the intellectual, emotional, spiritual, creative, and physical growth that will lead to a life satisfying to the individual and valuable to the great good.

Additionally, the Trevor Zoo is an integral part of Millbrook School and has grown so that it accommodates more than 180 exotic and indigenous animals, including eight endangered species, within facilities that extend over six acres and include a veterinary clinic.  In 1989, the zoo was accredited by the A.Z.A. (Association of Zoos and Aquariums).

As a part of the science and community service programs and overall curriculum of Millbrook School, the Trevor Zoo encourages its students to act as stewards of the natural world and to serve others.  The zoo offers unique opportunities for Millbrook students to develop an appreciation for wildlife and a conservation ethic through direct contact with living animals, through associated academic classes, and through research.

The school community is close knit, and students have a real responsibility for life on campus and in the world beyond.

Millbrook School's statement on diversity

Valuing diversity is essential to Millbrook School's mission:  to prepare our students for a life both individually satisfying and valuable to the greater society.  We strive to preserve and renew the vision as we deliberately construct a community that embodies and celebrates the diversity that characterizes the modern world.

Our cultivation of a truly enriching learning environment can only be complete when we attract and retain a diverse population of students, faculty and staff who reflect, welcome and respect differences including those in ability, age, class, ethnicity, gender, nationality, race, religious affiliation and sexual orientation.

We expect the members of this community to respect all that makes us unique and explore perspectives that challenge our own.  We must therefore equip our community with the language and skills necessary for honest inquiry and discussion, as we empower ourselves to be ethical citizens at Millbrook School and beyond.
