Individual visits to The Institute are scheduled upon invitation by the Admissions Office as part of the application process. If you would like to visit campus prior to applying, we invite you to attend an Open House.
An Open House is held twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. Open Houses are typically 2.5 hours in length, and include informational sessions about our Academy and postsecondary programs, as well as student-led tours of our campuses. Please fill out the inquiry form to the right for more information.
Our campus is located on Route 22 one mile north of the (only) traffic light in the town of Amenia, NY. The main entrance to The Institute is on the west side of Route 22 and is flanked by stone pillars with signs that read "Etkin Environmental Center." Conveniently, we are just 4 miles from the Wassaic Train Station, the last stop on the Metro-North (Harlem line) out of Grand Central in NYC.
