Get to Know Corlears School
A private NYC neighborhood school for the entire city.
Offering a solid academic foundation and a vibrant, inclusive community, for curious young minds ages 2 to 10.
Founded in 1968, Corlears School is one of the few schools in New York City that focuses exclusively on the early years of education (age 2-5th grade) — and we always have. In our five decades of experience, we’ve come to understand that these early years are the most crucial formative years for every child. They set a foundation of learning and confidence for everything to come. We specialize in guiding this impressionable age group, because the start of your child’s academic life should be nothing short of exceptional.
