Our Team


Resident Directors: John and Laura Walsh

John and Laura are thrilled to be back for another year. The Walshs are long-time New Canaan residents who raised three children in town. Empty nesters, they took on the challenge of managing the ABC house back in 2013 and have done a wonderful job creating a safe and welcoming environment for our scholars. They report that the 2017/18 school year is already off to a terrific start!
