Boardingware is used to manage weekend requests and vacation/ break travel. Parents can access the Boardingware system via web once their student's account is registered. When you receive the email invitation from Boardingware, please follow the simple registration process.
Flights should be booked to allow ample time for students to get to and from the airports. JFK and La Guardia Airports are two hours from school, Newark Liberty Airport is 2 1/2, and Hartford's Bradley Airport is 1 1/2 hours. A travel day is built into most breaks so parents may book flights at that day if necessary.
Parents are encouraged to make arrangements directly with one of the following car services:
Students wishing to take the Metro North train line to and/or from New York City are transported to and from the Ten Mile River train station by faculty drivers. There is no charge for this service if your child departs and/or returns at the specific train times designated below.
Students leaving or arriving at times other than those designated must arrange taxi service to or from the train station. Please convey any information about alternate departure or return times to Barbara D’Iorio (860-927-0047 x1003) or the Administrator on Duty (203-788-4985).
