Our 160 acre campus in the wooded Wisconsin countryside is a calm and nurturing setting where students from around the country gain the skills and experiences necessary to successfully return to their families, school districts, and communities.

As a nationally recognized provider, we offer programs for students with developmental disabilities, mental health disorders, neurological disorders, and emotional disturbances. In addition, we offer specialized programs for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Mood and Anxiety Disorders, and Complex Trauma. We provide an individualized, person-centered, and integrated team approach, emphasizing positive behavioral support, therapeutic relationships, and developmentally appropriate practices.  

We are also known for our research based educational curriculum. In a sensory and technology rich environment, our licensed special education teachers provide academic instruction, pre-vocational education, and adaptive physical education. Additionally, speech and language, occupational, art, and music therapies are integrated throughout each student’s program as needed. For our middle and high school students ready to access a generalized curriculum in a supported environment, we offer a departmentalized model in which students change classes, follow a set schedule, and learn to adapt to a variety of teaching styles, just as would occur in the students’ home district.  

Our goal at Genesee Lake School is to provide an innovative and enriching environment for the students in our care to learn and experience all that life can offer. To provide a place to grow.
