We are a non profit, private special education school created with the sole purpose of providing for the specialized needs of children with disabilities. Renowned for our warm, family-like atmosphere, we strive to meet the needs of all students (ages 3-21 years) and adults (21 years and older) with dignity and respect, and provide opportunities for growth, development, and independence. Located in Bellmawr, New Jersey, we provide services to individuals throughout the South Jersey region--at no cost to the families. Let us share with you our 50 years of experience, excellence, and determination.

School's Approach

Our educational programming provides appropriate challenges focusing on our students' abilities, not their disabilities. Our teachers utilize research-based teaching techniques and individualized, multi-sensory curriculums that follow all the guidelines of the New Jersey Department of Education.
