About Storm King School

Established in 1867, the Storm King School is a private boarding school with a long history on the U.S. east coast. The school stands on the west bank of the Hudson River, close to the peak of Storm King, the Military Academy at West Point. It is only 50 miles to New York so students here cannot only enjoy a beautiful and safe environment, but also the cultural and art resources of New York.

Students in the school come from 13 countries. Through international cultural exchanges, students establish international ideas of their own and become global citizens. In order to adapt international students to the school environment, ESL courses are taught from introduction, and the students are provided with necessary assistance both inside and outside the classroom.
