Where you can be you: your home away from home

Our welcoming campus community empowers you to come as you are and become who you want to be. Together, we create an inclusive environment where everyone feels a sense of belonging. Sharing everyday life—studying, eating, rooming, exploring, hanging out—is a priceless life-preparing experience

Taking care of yourself and others, in and out of the classroom

EF Academy New York has created co-curricular lesson plans that aligns with our classroom curriculum and our DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging) efforts to ensure a well-rounded experience for students from diverse backgrounds. These lessons foster kindness, personal leadership, self-expression, and collaborative skills. Each month, students are given an ‘essential question’ which guide activities in residential life, health & wellness, advisory, and technology. April’s focus was on ending the year healthily: discussing diversity, celebrating Pride Week, addressing sleep habits, exploring mindfulness, stress coping, and commemorating Earth Day—a cause uniting us all.

Together, our differences become our super-power

We are deeply committed to creating a vibrant campus community—students, faculty, and staff—that reflects the rich diversity of our world and where everyone feels seen, heard, and valued. Whoever you are, whatever makes you unique, whatever you are passionate about— we welcome you!

We practice healthy habits and mindsets

Wellness is a big focus here at EF Academy New York. That all starts with learning the basics of self-care: establishing positive habits around sleep, diet, and physical fitness. We also help you find ways of reducing stress and anxiety through mindfulness practices that work for you with health and wellness presentations during Advisory.

We share the responsibility of giving back to the planet

We are committed to achieving carbon neutrality at our school, means balancing the carbon created by our daily activities with practices that reduce greenhouse gas emissions in other ways: reducing the energy we use, recycling and up-cycling waste, and sourcing green products and services. Sustainability is a pillar in many of our co-curricular activities, such as in our Environmental and Sustainability Program and Cooking Club, where every student can contribute to a project with real impact that they can see take effect right here on campus.


A truly global school: classmates from 60+ nationalities

Few other schools can match the “mini-UN” vibe of an EF Academy campus. Virtually every class, activity, and event becomes “global studies".
