The Christopher School
The Christopher School is a New York State certified special education school that provides a therapeutic and residential setting for children with developmental disabilities who require 24-hour supervision and who have been placed, or are at risk of being placed, in residential schools outside New York State. With the right combination of support, guidance and care, the children are able to participate in a safe and integrated educational environment. Located in the Bronx, the school allows the children to maintain close contact with their families and communities. When the youth reaches 21 years of age, SCO provides a smooth transition to a carefully chosen adult placement.
