Corlears is a unique and nurturing school specializing in 21st century education for children, ages 2 ā€“ 10, in the Chelsea section of New York City. Students at Corlears are intellectually curious, creative, and have the potential for great academic achievement, peer leadership, and emotional and social growth.

I was drawn to Corlears because of its focus on elementary education, small class sizes, and the passion I felt from everyone within the community. While getting to know Corlears I met with the educators and parents of the school and was struck by their level of involvement and commitment to fostering a love of learning in each student and supporting their educational journey.  Students at Corlears know themselves well as learners and cannot wait to get to school each morning.  Our unique interdisciplinary approach allows students to be avid participants in their educational experience; building confidence and self-efficacy.  As they prepare to move on to middle school, they are given leadership opportunities that could only be offered by a school that focuses on the elementary years. Graduating students enter middle school with confidence and curiosity; ready to take on the next phase of their educational journey. 

Iā€™m thrilled to share that this year we have made some shifts in our age groupings, and for the first time have a stand-alone Kindergarten, and 2ā€™s program.  These exciting changes mean that this fall, we will offer a 2s, 3/4s, Kindergarten, 1st/2nd Grade, 3rd/4th Grade and 5th Grade. These shifts in the preschool and lower grades, plus the enhancements of a dynamic upper grades program, support tremendous growth for every student at Corlears.

We are currently accepting applications for our early childhood program and elementary school for the 2017-2018 school year. I encourage you to visit us so that you can learn first - hand why our students have such a love of learning. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know your children!
