Léman is open for the 2020-21 school year, offering in-person, hybrid and fully online instruction. We invite prospective families to learn about Léman through a Virtual or In-Person Admissions Tour. Léman is committed to making independent school accessible to a wide range of families through a robust financial aid program. Tuition assistance is available and we encourage you to speak with our admissions team. While the Admissions Priority Deadline of Dec 1 for Kindergarten, 6th and 9th grade has passed, Léman continues to accept applications on a rolling basis. Please contact the admissions office if you are interested in applying for those grades. Spots in other grades are filled on a space-available basis.

Student Life

Community Involvement

By building partnerships and collaborating with others in our local area, Léman is a leader within the Lower Manhattan community. Through our service work, we inspire our community and uphold being open-minded, caring citizens who respect the perspectives of others.

A Culture of Service

Throughout the year, Léman students embrace a philosophy of giving. Each month, our students engage in meaningful service work in support of a specific organization. Together, students and teachers participate in discussions about partnerships, sustainability and the mission of the charity. Our students have opportunities to act, whether by creating doggie pillows for Social Tees Animal Rescue, swimming laps to raise awareness for Multiple Sclerosis, or packing meals with Rise Against Hunger.

Upper School students participate in service learning through clubs and associations such as The Red Cross Club, The Volunteer Club, National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society. IB Diploma students broaden their educational experience through community service work as part of their Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) requirement, which includes an unpaid and voluntary exchange that has a learning benefit for the student. To complete CAS successfully, students must complete a CAS project and demonstrate achievement of the program's eight learning outcomes.

Community Service Committee

The Léman Community Service Committee, comprised of faculty, students, and parents, regularly brings our community together as one school to make a difference in the lives of others. Supporting those in need both locally and globally, the Community Service Committee is dedicated to spearheading school-wide charitable activities, educating others about the importance of service, and activating students, staff and families to participate in ongoing initiatives.
