*All funds raised will be going to the Upper School Capital Campaign.*
The Manhattan Childrens Center (MCC) is one of the leading private schools and a global disseminator of research-based education and therapy for children with autism (ASD) and related disorders.
At The Manhattan Childrens Center we believe that every child
must have the opportunity to become a contributing member of
their community. We understand that all children are unique and
individualized instruction is essential to their growth.
MCC intends to be here for our children over the long-term.
MCC believes that the most practical way to implement a plan that will
enhance the overall curriculum and provide the physical space to
accommodate its 13-17 and 18-21 aged learners is to embark on a
two-phase multiyear capital plan over the next ten years.
WHY A CAPITAL CAMPAIGN?
The Manhattan Children Center has outgrown its current space.
MCC MUST INCREASE ITS PHYSICAL FOOTPRINT AND TAILOR ITS
CURRICULUM TO OFFER MORE ENHANCED PROGRAMMING FOR
ALL ITS STUDENTS.
MCC has the physical space to continue its current level of programming.
However, within 1 to 2 years it will not have enough space to continue
educating its current student population as they grow older.
MCC is aware that there are no alternative schools or other options in
New York City for our families and so it must be forward thinking in terms of where our children will be five years from now.
It is up to us to act now and make a difference
in the lives of hundreds of children, young adults,
their families and our community.
