Two profit schools, Chantam and Ho-Ho-Kus, for students with intellectual or medical disabilities. Each school houses a wide range of enrichment classes and academic programs for students from 5-21 years old.

School's Approach

Our mission is to prepare our students academically, emotionally & socially to become contributing members of their community. Students are grouped according to abilities not by their "grade" levels. They may stay in the same class for years. The maximum age range within a classroom is four years; 4:1 student/staff ratio, max 12 in a class
