Vt Center For Deaf/hard Hearing

     Tel: (802)258-9500
   
Grades: PK - 12 | 40 students
Thanks to a generous bequest by Colonel William Austine, a retired army officer who spent his final years in Brattleboro, the Austine School opened its doors to both Deaf and Blind students in the Fall of 1912.
In 1917, it was decided to devote Austine’s resources exclusively to the education of the Deaf.
Holton Hall, the original building and now a historic landmark, became a home away from home for growing numbers of Deaf students.
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.
