About Via Center

ia 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. 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. Levels of functioning vary greatly in Via students. In the area of grooming and hygiene, for example, one student might be learning a basic skill such as hand-washing while another might be working on a hygiene and grooming self-check list in preparation for an upcoming job interview. We are able to accommodate this wide range of skill-levels by grouping students in small learning pods to work with other students of similar abilities and learning styles.
