In September, AHRC NYC will open its newest school, the Staten Island Preparatory School for school-age and preschool students with autism and other disabilities, as reported on silive.com. Thanks to Rep. Max Rose, Staten Island Borough President, James Oddo, Assemblyman Michael Reilly, and Rose Kerr and Ed Burke from the Boro President’s office for their leadership and commitment to finding a great new Staten Island home for AHRC NYC’s newest school.
“The New York State Department of Education approached us about an unmet need for additional seats for children with disabilities and autism,” said Christina Muccioli, vice president of education for AHRC NYC, in a news release. “After a two-year search, we identified a former parochial school, Our Lady Help of Christians, which unfortunately closed. We look forward to having a solid working relationship with the Archdiocese of New York and the parish of Our Lady Help of Christians.”
Staten Island Prep will serve 94 students between the ages of 3 to 12 with educational programming designed to address the individual needs of students. All related services will be provided to students.
