The Carol and Frank Biondi Education Center provides a comprehensive program focused on meeting the academic, emotional and social needs of students requiring placement away from home and those of needing a day school program not available to them in public schools in their communities.
Small classes, team teaching, safety, intensive counseling and crisis intervention - all delivered by trained and caring professionals - make the Leake and Watts' Biondi program successful for emotionally disturbed and at-risk youngsters.
The program is offered throughout the school year following The New York State Education Department mandates for physical education in grades 1-12.
Aquatics in the indoor pool, seasonal sports participating in Section 1 in the NYS Public High School Athletic Association; such as girls volleyball, boys tackle football, boys and girls basketball, softball, track and field and cheerleading are among the activities offered in this program.
In addition the program conducts an annual school wide Olympia tournament and extra curricular activities throughout the year.
The school provides several enrichment programs including Art, Music, Steel Drums, Photography, Technology, Library, Silk Screening, After School Tutoring, and The Council for Unity and Student Council.
These programs provide the students with experiences outside of the conventional academic arena and often with needed successes that help improve a student's confidence and widen interest.
