  • The Austine School opened its doors to both Deaf and Blind students in the Fall of 1912.

  • As the student population increased, additional facilities were constructed resulting in the beautiful campus now known as Austine School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
  • The mission of The Vermont Center for the Deaf & Hard of Hearing, Inc. is to provide comprehensive educational and support services to Deaf and Hard of Hearing children, adults, and families throughout Vermont and surrounding states.
