Professional Children's School is an independent day school enrolling almost 200 students in grades 6-12. Founded in 1914 Professional Children's School provides a challenging and engaging college preparatory program for busy artists, athletes and other young people who are serious about their studies. 

Since our founding, our students have had the option of distance learning.  While the technology has changed over the years, the school has remained dedicated to allowing students to balance time in school with professional demands outside, and our community of master educators and devoted peers provides the social and emotional support children need to excel.  This century of experience enabled the entire school to make a smooth transition to online learning and teaching in March 2020 due to the global pandemic.

Professional Children's School is accredited by the New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS) and the school is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools.
