We have served students from dozens of districts across all eight counties of Western New York and throughout the state. Some students join us as traditional day school students, while others join us in-residence for a more immersive experience. Our day-students get bused from local schools ranging anywhere from two minutes to two hours, away, while our residential students can be enrolled from any of the 11 regions throughout New York State, including the Adirondack region, Hudson Valley, Central New York, the North Country, Southern Tier, Mohawk Valley, New York City and Long Island.

Each of our students has an individualized education plan (IEP) and a safety support plan (ISSP). We offer classes in the 8:1:1 setting (eight students, to one teacher and one teacher’s aide). Counseling services are available to all of our students as well, and our curriculum follows a New York State Regents Diploma track, with options for Career Technical Education available as well.

The first step in our admissions process is to contact your home school district’s Special Education office to discuss your request and review your options. Your home district then sends a referral packet to our school for review. Each referral is reviewed and evaluated individually by our intake team. All of our students work to meet New York State’s High School Regents Diploma expectations. They typically have been unsuccessful in other programs in their home district, prior to being referred to our school.
