SCO Program Updates

SCO programs are operating as normal with the following exceptions:

DOE Programs at SCO: Please note that SCO After School programs, Early Education programs, and Transfer High Schools (Bronx Arena Community High School, East Brooklyn Community High School, and North Queens Community High School) are closed through the rest of the 2019-2020 academic school year.

Residential Schools: SCO’s residential campuses remain open. To prevent community spread and promote social distancing, instruction will be modified for students at Westbrook Preparatory School, Madonna Heights School, The Theresa Paplin School, The Christopher School, and The Tyree Learning Center.

Residential Programs: To help protect our residential clients,  all visitors will be prescreened by phone prior to scheduled visits to SCO residences. Please do not visit an SCO residence unannounced.  Thank you for doing your part to protect all SCO clients.

Ways to Help

COVID-19 is challenging the way we do things, but we won’t let it stop us from helping the 60,000 New Yorkers who are counting on us. SCO is actively working on addressing the immediate and long-term needs of our families during this crisis and we need your help. There are many ways you can partner with SCO to offer support.
