Rebecca School North

The Rebecca School, a New York City private school for students ages 3 to 21 with neurodevelopmental delays in relating and communicating, has expanded to Westchester County, New York.

Rebecca School North, opening Fall 2024, will be located in Mount Vernon at 1 Bradford Rd., not far from the Pelham train station. It will also accept students from northern Manhattan and the Bronx.

A majority of the current school’s student body, says Program Director Tina McCourt, has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, “but we make sure our program can fit any child who needs a specialized education.”

McCourt notes that the school’s market research “showed us that Westchester doesn’t have enough specialized education options. We felt that we’d be opening up a choice for families that need one. Having been in [NYC] for 18 years, we see what we’ve been able to provide for students, and how we’ve been able to individualize the program [taking into consideration] the individual and their family.”

The NYC location has 155 students ages 3 to 21. Rebecca School North has plans to accommodate up to 112 students in 14 classrooms, and to roll out with five classrooms with about 40 students, with a teacher-student ratio of 1 to 2.

Rebecca School utilizes the DIR®Floortime model (or the Developmental, Individual-differences, and Relationship-based model). Its mission is to move students up the developmental ladder by building meaningful, respectful relationships and by providing a holistic collaboration between school, homes, and the community.
