Powered by the Genius of Children
Located at 48th Street and the forefront of education, The Ancona School is an extraordinary community built on the genius of children. Our school is a transformational adventure that builds on the wonder inside young learners and teaches them how to soar. We challenge students to learn the academic and life skills they need to become engaged young learners and leaders of a new society they will help create. Our faculty looks to innovators and thought leaders to create a carefully guided exploration of the world through a challenging curriculum and a diverse, child-centered community.
Welcome to the Ancona School. A powerful education in thinking for life.
