Because ticks are common in this region during the summer months, we offer this information regarding Lyme Disease and an outline of preventative steps. Follow this link to Lyme Disease Information.
Check-in for students are on Sundays from 9 a.m. to noon. Family members are welcome to come with their children to help them settle in. We allow one day early arrival for students who arrive on campus on the shuttle from JFK. Students traveling as unaccompanied minors will need to coordinate transportation with one of the livery services.
Family members should pick up students by noon on the final day of the program.
Airport shuttles: specific guidelines need to be met if students intend to utilize the JFK Shuttle (from and to the airport). Please click "Download Travel Information" (below) for complete details. It is important to note that airport shuttles are from and to JFK only.
Regional airports: both Bradley International in Hartford, CT, and Westchester County Airport in White Plains, NY, are an hour and thirty minutes from campus. New York City airports are approximately two hours and fifteen minutes from campus.
Please submit the completed online student travel form in your account as soon the student’s travel plans are confirmed.
