The Henry Viscardi School at The Viscardi Center is a private, New York State supported 4201 school (Pre-K through grade 12) for children with severe physical disabilities and who often require life-sustaining medical treatment throughout the day. Its specialized, accessible educational setting provides a fully-enriched academic program, a variety of therapies, assistive technology and medical supports to students who may otherwise need to receive instruction in their homes or a hospital.
The proceeds from the Reach for a Star Luncheon support after-school activities, clubs, adapted sports, Friday Night Recreation and overnights for the students of the Henry Viscardi School.
