Education

Educational ProgramVilla of Hope 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, and is a specialized day school offering education and therapeutic services to youth ages 12 to 21 who live at home.

Students 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. Students who attend Villa of Hope School receive assistance in addressing their academic, social, behavioral and emotional needs.

Our school can serve up to 112 students in grades 7 through 12. Students receive specialized daily instruction to ensure that all students achieve the knowledge and skills necessary to live independently and lead self-directed lives. Many students complete graduation requirements and earn a Regents Diploma; students at Villa of Hope School also have the opportunity to earn a Regents Diploma with Advanced Distinction. More than 80% of our students go on to attend college, trade school, and/or enter the workforce or military upon graduation.

We welcome inquiries and visits. Students at Villa of Hope School are loud and proud about their school, and return to “pay it forward” to our staff and school as they celebrate success.

Update to Smart Schools Funding:

The Villa of Hope School submitted a supplemental plan for spending the remaining Smart Schools funds.

Our application has requested the use of the funds to purchase a Dell Latitude Laptop to add to our laptop inventory at school. Along with the laptop we have proposed purchases that include-Dell 27 Monitor, 4K HDMI Cable with Ethernet, Dell Optical Mouse, Dell Dock, and a Dell EcoLoop Pro Briefcase.

We have heard from students, parents, and staff that access to computers and technology integration is important. Many have requested access outside of school when needed, especially during the COVID pandemic. Students are typically using Microsoft teams to connect with teachers and instruction missed due to school avoidance, school absences, Snow Days and/or other.

In addition, we are using an online Progress Monitoring Tool. Fastbridge assessments are being administered three (3) times throughout the year. The data collected helps to inform instruction and AIS services for each of our students. Teachers are then able to provide appropriate interventions to ensure success. 

Thank you to SUNY Brockport Interim Dean, Dr. Thomas Hernandez. We appreciate the consult regarding best practices in Education aligned to Technology Integration.
