Green Chimneys Day Programs

Green Chimneys Day Programs accept students primarily from school districts in New York State and Connecticut. Admission to the therapeutic elementary and middle schools is based on referrals from sending school districts and the individual needs of the student. Student enrollment is covered by the home school district, although parents may choose to pay privately for their child’s tuition.

Green Chimneys Residential Treatment Center

Green Chimneys Residential Treatment Center accepts children from school districts across New York State and Connecticut. Admission is based on school district or agency referral and the individual needs of the child. Residential Program costs are covered by the home school district and Department of Social Services, although parents may choose to pay privately for their child’s tuition.

While we would like to be a resource for all children with special needs, we are not appropriately equipped to provide treatment for children who display active fire setting, problematic sexualized behavior, active psychosis or substance abuse, or who are adjudicated youth. In addition, we are unable to provide appropriate treatment for children with IQs below 70.

Please note that children referred with severe medical conditions or physical disabilities are evaluated on a case-by-case basis in order to assess our ability to meet their medical needs.
