Fast Facts

The Packer Collegiate Institute is an independent, co-educational PreK-12 school in beautiful Brooklyn Heights, one subway stop from Lower Manhattan.

Established on Joralemon Street in 1845, our school is located on a unique and historic campus. The Packer Early Learning Center, one block away at 100 Clinton Street, houses our Pre-K and Kindergarten classes.

Packer’s dynamic curriculum is shaped by deeply talented educators who put students at the center of their own learning experience.
