Visiting SBS

There is simply no better way to get to know The Stony Brook School than by visiting our beautiful 55-acre campus and spending time with our amazing people. There are two ways to experience The Stony Brook School difference:

Campus Tours

Tours are typically led by students and will include a discussion with one of our Admissions representatives. SBS also offers shadow days to allow students to experience a full day on campus. In most cases, an applicant can interview on the same day that they shadow or tour.

To schedule a tour or shadow day, please email the Admissions Office at or call 631-751-1800 x1.

Open Houses

Open Houses provide a comprehensive introduction to The Stony Brook School. We offer chances to speak with our Head of School, Admissions representatives, administrators and faculty. These events also campus tours and a look at our on-campus dormitories. To RSVP to one of our Open Houses, please pick one of the dates to below.

Getting To Campus

By Car
For directions by car, please consult Google Maps via the link or the widget in the sidebar.

By Train
The Long Island Rail Road’s Stony Brook Station is across the street from our campus and is served by the Port Jefferson Line.  Trains travel daily to and from Penn Station in Manhattan.

By Ferry

Two year-round car ferries offer round-trip service to Connecticut. The closest option to campus operates between Port Jefferson, which is four miles east of the School, and Bridgeport, Connecticut. The other ferry travels between Orient Point, on the east end of Long Island, and New London, Connecticut. Reservations are suggested for both.

By Air
Two major airports – JFK International Airport and LaGuardia Airport – are located within 40 miles of our campus. The Long Island MacArthur Airport, which is just a 15 minute drive away, is another option for domestic travel via Southwest Airlines or US Airways. 

Car/Limousine Service from Airports
Cost one-way is about $110. You can arrange for the cost to be paid by credit card. When making the reservation, ask for The Stony Brook School rate. Sometimes students share the cost with friends. Cars are new town cars; a uniformed driver will meet student in baggage claim. The student's name will be on a sign.

Classic Limo
Cost one-way is about $75-110. You can arrange for a private car or the share-a-ride van. This is a good service, but it may take longer to return to Stony Brook if the van is dropping off other passengers. Classic Limo can also be contacted through the airport's Ground Transportation Desk.

Spartan Limousine Service
Cost one-way is about $75. Drivers are not in uniform. The driver will meet the student/parent in baggage claim. If the driver is picking up a student, the student's name will be on a sign.
