A Catholic Elementary School
for Children Who Learn Differently

The John Cardinal O’Connor School is dedicated to providing the benefits of a Catholic education to children who learn differently. The school empowers children to thrive academically, spiritually, emotionally and socially in our supportive school community. Children of all faiths are welcome.

Located in Irvington, New York, JCOS is a special needs private school that specializes in giving its students a world-class learning experience backed by a skilled teaching staff. Our instructors are highly adept in special education programs and applications, including Preventing Academic Failure (PAF) and Orton-Gillingham Methodology. We use multisensory teaching techniques to give every student the tools they need to gain scholastic ability and social proficiency.

Our commitment to well-rounded schooling for students with special needs has made our private Catholic school one of the foremost in Westchester County. We look forward to the opportunity to help your children acquire important life skills during these critical years. Please feel free to contact us with your questions and concerns.
