Education: Our school program educates children ages 5-18 with complex disabilities including medical frailties and Autism Spectrum Disorders. The Center is committed to meeting the educational and health needs of each and every child in our care. Employing our HealthE6 model, we aim to educate and support the whole child with evidence-based methods and meaningful interprofessional collaboration. Our nature-based curriculum is aligned with New York State education standards and our programs are taught with consistency and excellence. Content is delivered through Explicit Instruction that is systematic, direct, engaging and success-oriented. Our students, when ready, participate in pre-vocational and vocational opportunities to prepare them for adult life and careers.
Residential: Our residential facilities and program are designed to help each student develop to their fullest potential. Our picturesque setting includes outdoor learning environments, spaces for creative and therapeutic pursuits, and comfortable homes. Activities such as performing arts, yoga, gardening and organic farming, hiking, swimming, horseback riding, snowshoeing, skiing, and various team sports provide opportunities for individuals to learn, grow, and have fun.
