Via Center

  • 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.
