Novo Diveevo

The Summer 2024 session of the Synodal School of Liturgical Music will be held at Novo-Diveevo Convent in Nanuet, New York.


The current residential tuition rate of $1550 covers three meals daily onsite in the Convent’s large dining room, and simple accommodations in either:

  • Individual rooms (singles), with shared bathrooms/showers on the first floor of the former Novo Diveevo residence for senior citizens. The school will be providing linens.
  • Double rooms (doubles), in the so-called “motel” on the territory of the convent. Each double is equipped with a bathroom/shower. Please note that there are a limited number of doubles so if you would like to share a room with someone please let us know as soon as possible.

Laundry facilities are available.

Alternative housing will also be available at the Sonesta Simply Suites hotel in Nanuet, located a five- minute walk from the Convent territory, at a very reasonable rate (TBA).  In that case SSLM will apply a credit of (TBA) from the cost of the program to the cost of the hotel stay, and ask that the student choosing to stay at the hotel cover the difference.

Also please note that since this is a working monastic community, we will ask students to respect the privacy of the sisters and also to keep the noise levels down in the evenings after class/dinner.
