St. Coletta Day School

StColettaImageOur Schools provide an environment that facilitates healthy emotional, personal and physical growth for all students with mild to severe special needs including autism, intellectual disabilities and other multiple challenges.  Students are encouraged to learn and work cooperatively and independently within their abilities. Maintaining positive attitudes, habits of mutual respect, self-esteem, self-expression/advocacy, decision-making, and tolerance are stressed.  Learning activities are integrated into all areas of the program and are designed to build and enhance the productivity, knowledge and self-esteem of each student in our care.

The keystone in our mission of challenging all students to achieve their greatest potential is embedded in positive behavioral supports, technology and vocational inclusive pathways.  We offer high staff to student ratios and the integration of the Common Core and Massachusetts Frameworks into a comprehensive school and community-based curriculum that includes academics, supportive employment, recreation, social skills and community living.
