The Saint Mary's Home for Children, George N. Hunt
Campus School was established in 1982 for residential and day students
with learning and socio-emotional behavioral disorders, who have failed
to succeed in their public school. It boasts a clinically-based educational
program for the students placed in residence as well as students referred
by school districts (180-day program). It is noted for a 45-day assessment
module especially designed for students with socio-emotional and behavioral
issues which also serves as an interim alternate educational setting
The school has a highly structured program offering special education,
related and therapeutic services to boys aged 6-14 and girls aged
Students are provided with a safe, comfortable
environment where academic and social experience can increase their
sense of competency and self esteem. The small student to teacher
ratio facilitates positive academic and personal growth and enables
the students to learn under the conditions which promote trust, understanding,
acceptance, and most of all respect.
The School is organized into needs-based classrooms
with each child being placed in the classroom that best meets his/her
overall needs. The program provides customized goals and services
for a well-structured, comprehensive and individually targeted education
for our students. The program offers: (1) hands-on learning through
programs which include (but are not limited to) credit reclamation
and advancement through programs such as Virtual Learning Academy;
(2)computer assisted instruction utilizing resources such as Lexia
Reading and Symphony Math; (3) project-based, community-based,
experiential learning (e.g. writing curriculum is in part accomplished
through the "Hunt for News" newsletter project and science and math
reinforced through the Brandaris Maritime STEM project). Health,
physical education, music and art are all an essential aspect of the
overall program as well.
All related services (e.g. speech and language,
occupational therapy) are available for those students requiring them.
