Life After MCS


"MCS gave me a core set of values that I will take with me through the rest of my life and use to guide my decision making. It has given me a sense of what’s right and wrong and taught me how to tackle things that are difficult. It has given me a second family and a home away from home.”

--Leilani ’15


MCS High School AlumniManhattan Country School students attend a variety of high schools throughout the New York City area, both public and private. Some choose to attend boarding schools, mostly in the Northeast. Our students attend highly selective high schools, and very often they gain admission to their first choice selections. Placement into high school begins in the seventh grade with a parent conference. With our placement director, students are assisted throughout the selection and application process. Admissions directors describe our students as “bright and dynamic, with a strong sense of self, and advocates for social justice.”

The following lists provides a sampling of the high schools, colleges and universities MCS students attend:
