Via School, a non-public school offering education and behavioral treatment to developmentally disabled students aged 5-21, accepts students who need and can benefit from highly-structured, behaviorally-based programming offered in the context of a warm and family-like environment.
Programs are designed to provide a strategic blend of challenge and support to help students and residents or clients succeed in increasingly less-restrictive environments such as those offered by local school districts, agencies providing adult services, supported employment programs, supported living programs, and, most importantly, the family and community.
As a rule, Via students have educational, behavioral, or medical needs that require more intensive staffing and behavioral programming than can be offered in classrooms in their own school districts.
Sometimes, these are students who have not flourished in prior placements in larger non-public schools and require a smaller, more intimate setting to succeed.
Referrals can be made by parents, school district program managers, case managers or care providers.
Placements must be made by the students' school districts through the Individualized Educational Program (IEP) teams.
