Special Education

The Department of Special Education offers elementary special education schools, early intervention centers, learning centers located partner Catholic elementary schools, pre-vocational services for students with disabilities in partner Catholic high schools, and a center for autism and/or other severe learning disorders.

Each location offers individualized instruction and activities designed to help every child reach his/her God-given potential in a nurturing, accepting, family-like environment. Special education instructional programs include religious education, sacramental preparation and Gospel values. Each school and center is accredited and licensed and seeks to exceed minimum standards, striving for excellence.

Special education schools and centers focus on a child's strengths, abilities, and current successes and potential for the future, rather than on his/her disability. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in their child's social, personal and academic growth in partnership with faculty members specially trained in learning disorders and child development. In a setting with a low student-to-teacher ratio, teachers can give special attention to improvement of a student's organizational skills, homework completion and school conduct, as well as to providing an appropriately challenging curriculum that provides opportunity for success.
