Licensed by the RI Department of Education as a year round out-of-district special education school for grades K-12
  • We offer evaluations to assist with meeting special education requirements or determining if out-of-district placement is necessary.
  • Also offer a 45-day assessment program to determine if students qualify for special education services and what services will make them most successful.
  • We offer credit recovery and supportive learning programs throughout the year.
  • Our summer program component helps students to maintain social, emotional, and academic practices by actively engaging them in a program that emphasizes the outdoors, nature, and the environment.
Low Student to Teacher/Staff Ratios
  • Our student to teacher/staff ratio helps students develop meaningful relationships and achieve academic and personal growth.
  • Our students learn in an environment which supports and promotes success.
  • Related services such as Occupational Therapy and Speech/Language services are available per the student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
  • All students have an IEP based on their academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs.
  • Clinical and therapeutic support is provided to all students.
We follow RI’s Common Core Standards
  • We utilize hands-on learning, community activities, and project-based learning to support an inclusive approach to a highly diversified student body.
  • We fully implement the principles of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Social Emotional Learning (SEL), which are both RI initiatives for the development of positive and predictable expectations needed to succeed in school and in life.
School Referrals
  • Students can be referred to the campus school by Local Education Agencies to attend as a day student, if they meet special education criteria.
  • Students are also enrolled through the St. Mary’s residential program.
  • Our goal for all students is to prepare them to return to their public school or a less restrictive school, or to graduate ready to continue being successful learners.
  • We assist all residents and their families in their transition to enrollment in either their local school district or, if necessary, in an appropriate out-of-district program.
