Green Chimneys Admissions Criteria

Our seasoned Admissions Team works with you and your professional advisors to identify the needs of your child, and assess the appropriateness of Green Chimneys for your child. Request Information >

Green Chimneys School is designed for students who have been unsuccessful in a traditional educational setting and who require a small, structured and therapeutically supportive setting.

We 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.

Students considered for our therapeutic day school program are boys and girls ages 6-13 upon admission, who are struggling with a variety of social, emotional and behavioral challenges related to:

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders (including Asperger’s, High Functioning Autism (HFA) Disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder)
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Impulse Control Disorder
  • Mood Disorder
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Reactive Attachment Disorder
  • School Phobia and Refusal
  • Youth Mood Disturbances

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 IQ’s 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.
