Campus School

The Villa’s Campus School is a NYS approved private 853 school created by Chapter 853 of the Laws of 1976. This year-round program incorporates academic, vocational, and remedial services for youth in our Residential Treatment Center and Residential Treatment Facility. Students with emotional disturbance and learning disabilities are supported by a highly trained staff of academic classroom teachers, teachers’ assistants, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, a school nurse, [a support coordinator and an academic coordinator.] Nearly 65 youth in grades 7 through 12 receive specialized daily instruction to ensure that all students with disabilities achieve the knowledge and skills necessary to live independent and self-directed lives.

Avalon School, also a NYS approved private 853 school, is a specialized day school offering education and therapeutic services to youth ages 12 to 21 who live at home but need assistance in addressing their academic, social, behavioral and emotional needs.

Thirty students in grades 9 through 12 are served at Avalon, with 5 classrooms, meeting 210 days/year, including a 30-day summer session.
