Who We Serve

Green Chimneys School is designed for students who have been unsuccessful in a traditional education program and can benefit from a smaller, therapeutically supportive setting.

We serve over 80 school districts across New York State and parts of Connecticut, with a majority coming from Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess Counties. Students are typically enrolled for two or more years for therapeutic and educational services, and many return to their home school district.
