The Stony Brook School
1 Chapman Pky, Stony Brook, NY 11790
Stony Brook's founding headmaster, Frank E. Gaebelein, was determined to establish a school where an educational program of rigorous college preparation would be conducted within the context of the Christian faith and basic values, at a time when many were moving toward secular approaches to education. The school preserves the classic tradition, which Dr. Gaebelein articulated, of integrating faith and learning. Academics stress the development of abstract thinking, intensive reading and careful research from within a traditional liberal arts curriculum. The humanities are emphasized, with Advanced Placement courses offered in many subjects, and an independent learning program is available. The school hosts the Staley Lecture Series, held annually to foster intellectual curiosity and critical thinking. Upper-class honor students participate in a program of tutoring, while seniors satisfy a 40-hour community service requirement. Student exchange opportunities include a year of postgraduate study in England and spring break trips abroad.
