Academic Program

Trevor students benefit from an ambitious college-preparatory curriculum, with student engagement at the center of the learning experience. Trevor graduates are recognized in the colleges they attend as self-directed learners and expert collaborators—young leaders who aspire to make a positive impact within their communities and beyond.

Arts, Athletics & Clubs

At Trevor, students participate in a variety of formative programs. Our arts program allows students to explore a wide range of visual art, dance, music, and theatre arts, and gives them unique opportunities—such as choreographing performances for our signature Choreolab and singing the National Anthem to thousands at Citi Field. Students can also participate in a competitive athletics program starting in 6th grade and continuing through the JV and Varsity levels. In addition to arts and athletics, there are numerous extracurricular programs and clubs at Trevor— including Student Council, Newspaper, Multiple Identities One World, Model UN, Trevor Radio, Yearbook, and Peer Leadership.

Trevor Students

Trevor enrolls students from all five boroughs of NYC, the tri-state area, and international students. We cultivate an environment that reflects our multicultural and socioeconomically diverse city—and that enriches a wide range of talented students who experience the world from myriad viewpoints. For each of our students, Trevor is something unique—but for all, it is a launch pad for a lifelong love of learning.
