Irvington-based School Offers Curriculum for Children with Learning Disabilities, Speech and Language and Other Health Impairments

(June 2015 – Irvington, NY) – John Cardinal O’Connor School (JCOS) will host five TOURING TUESDAYS for prospective parents from 9 to 11 a.m. during the 2015/2016 school year as part of the archdiocesan-wide open house events called “Touring Tuesdays,” which are held each year at more than 140 Catholic elementary schools.

These Touring Tuesday events are scheduled throughout the school year and are designed to introduce prospective families to the life-long benefits and value of a Catholic education.  The dates for the TOURING TUESDAYS during the 2015/2016 school year will be January 12, February 2 and 23, March 8 and April 12 in 2016. JCOS invites prospective parents to attend the open house to learn about the school’s affordable language-based academic curriculum for children in grades 2-8 with learning disabilities, speech or language impairments or other health impairments.

Reservations for TOURING TUESDAY are required and can be made by calling 646-794-2885 or registering online at

At JCOS, students are taught in small classes with individualized attention. Teachers utilize multisensory teaching techniques to help children succeed both academically and socially. JCOS is a Catholic elementary school that welcomes children of all faiths.

“Families will have the opportunity to speak with teachers and other parents as they tour the school and see if John Cardinal O’Connor School’s unique academic curriculum may be the right fit for their child,” said Timothy McNiff, Superintendent of Schools. “Classes focus on the critical relationship between spoken and written language. We invite all families to see JCOS in action, have an opportunity to learn about the admissions process and meet with principals, faculty and parents of other students.”
