  Discovery

This is a church-affiliated boarding choir school, founded in 1919. The school is supported by the nearby Saint Thomas Church, an Episcopal church, continuing the Anglican tradition of all-male choral ensembles. Saint Thomas is one of only three choir schools that exclusively educate boy trebles of the choir, and where all boys are required to board at the school (Westminster Abbey Choir School in England and Escolania de Montserrat in Spain being the other two). Students ranging from age 8 to 14 reside and study at the choir school, a 14-story building one block south of Central Park. Since 2005, the school has offered a summer residential Girl Chorister Course. St. Thomas Choir School was founded in 1919 by the vestry of St. Thomas Church at the urging of T. Tertius Noble, an English born organist and composer, who had been the organist of Saint Thomas Church since 1913. The school officially opened on March 3, 1919 at its first location, a four-story building at 123 West 55th Street.
