Abbott School in Irvington to Rent to St. Christophers


On August 15th at the village of Irvington Board of Trustees meeting, a resident brought up the concern that St. Christopher’s school, a non-profit educational organization based in Dobbs Ferry was looking to rent space at the now vacant Abbott House school.
Abbott House Chief Operating Officer Robert Costello confirmed that students from the Greenburgh-North Castle School District, the parent organization of St. Christopher’s, would begin classes in September. It was stressed that the students on the Irvington campus would be day students only, as opposed to the residential students housed on the St. Christopher’s campus in Dobbs Ferry. There may be up to 120 students attending classes on the Irvington campus.
There have been concerns in the past about the behavior of the Dobbs Ferry St. Christopher’s school students, which occasionally leave the campus, but Mr. Costello assured the village of Irvington that “there have not been any problems with this group of students in the past and we don’t believe there will be in the future”.
