George N. Hunt Campus School

For students with learning, social, emotional, and behavioral challenges

What we offer

The George N. Hunt Campus School provides highly structured, individualized instruction, and therapeutic services to students with learning, social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. The K-12 Special Education school serves St. Mary’s Residential Services youth and additional Day Students who are referred by their Local Education Agencies.

Full clinical and therapeutic counseling and social-emotional learning is provided to all students. Small class size and personalized instruction ensure that individual needs are met. The goal for 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.

Full-time nursing is available at the school. Related services such as Occupational Therapy, Speech/Language services, and a Reading Specialist are available per the student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP). An Extended School Year program helps students to maintain social, emotional, and academic gains, recover credits, and actively engages them in a program that emphasizes the outdoors, nature, and the community.

For more information, contact Diane Long, School Administrator, at 353-3900 Ext. 259 or email dlong@gnhcs.net.
