Campus School

We provide highly structured, individualized instruction and therapeutic services to students with learning, social, emotional and behavioral disorders in our George N. Hunt Campus School. We are licensed by the RI Department of Education as a year round out-of-district special education school for grades K-12. The summer program component prevents students from regressing in social, emotional and academic progress by actively engaging students in credit recovery and supportive learning programs. If evaluations to assist with meeting special education requirements or determining if out-of-district placement are necessary, we offer those in our 45-day assessment program as well.

Our low student to teacher/staff ratios help students develop meaningful relationships, achieve academic and personal growth, and learn in an environment which supports and promotes success. Teachers are RI certified special educators, and include a Reading Specialist. Related services such as Occupational Therapy and Speech/Language services are available per the studentís Individualized Education Plan (IEP). All students have an IEP based on their academic, social, emotional and behavioral needs. Clinical and therapeutic support is provided to all students.

To ensure continuity between our program and public school programs, our curriculum follows RIís Common Core Standards. We utilize hands on learning, community activities and project based learning to support an inclusive approach to a highly diversified student body. We fully implement the principles of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) which are both RI initiatives for the development of positive and predictable expectations needed to succeed in school and in life.

Students can be referred to the campus school by Local Education Agencies to attend as day students or, if they meet special education criteria, students are enrolled through the St. Maryís residential program. Our goal for day students is to prepare them to return to their public school or a less restrictive school, or to graduate ready to continue being successful learners. We assist all residents and their families in their transition to enrollment in either their local school district or, if necessary, in an appropriate out-of-district program.
