The Orchard School's Full Profile



The Orchard School says

For more than 75 years, Andrus has been a proud provider of programs and services for children and families throughout Westchester County and our tri-state area. Under our corporate umbrella of the Julia Dyckman Andrus Memorial, our campus, community and Mental Health Divisions reach 2500 children and families every year with a broad spectrum of preventive and restorative services for families and their children from birth through adolescence. The Julia Dyckman Andrus Memorial is a private, non-profit community agency that provides assessment, treatment, education and preventive services for children and their families in residential, day and other restorative programs. The mission is to serve children and families, without regard to background or financial status, who have or are at risk for developing behavioral health problems. A highly qualified and caring staff uses established techniques and innovative programs to accomplish these purposes.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
