St Rita School For The Deaf

  • St Rita School For The Deaf is a Catholic day/residential program whose primary mission is to educate infants and students who need special methods of communication and technological support.
  • We are committed to providing a safe, value-oriented environment which facilitates the educational, social and spiritual development of each student.
  • We continue to believe that the best way to educate deaf and hard of hearing children is through Comprehensive Communication.
  • This philosophy offers a child every available stimulus for human interaction, including sign language, lip-reading, assistive listening devices, visual aids, and technology.
  • Every student is different and has his or her own way of learning and communicating.
  • Through the philosophy of Comprehensive Communication, teachers and students are able to choose which method of communication works best for them.
  • This approach to communicating promotes an accepting and positive classroom environment, allowing students to focus their attention on what is really important, learning.
