“A new school, For a new century, In a new neighborhood” (Claremont Prep)
Claremont Prep is located near the New York Stock Exchange, a seemingly strange place for a grade school.

A new school
For a new century
In a new neighborhood.

Located in the heart of Lower Manhattan, the financial capital of the world and New York's fastest growing residential neighborhood, Claremont Preparatory School is the first independent ongoing school to open in Manhattan in the last 50 years, and the first nonsectarian K-12 school below Canal Street. We accommodate 1000 children, with 400 kindergarten through fifth graders — 70 students per grade — and 600 sixth through eighth graders — 200 per grade.

We are committed to providing our students with a strong foundation in academics, the arts and athletics and to preparing them to meet the challenges of high school, college and the global community.
