Program Description:
The Strawbridge School is a Type I special education program with Pre-GED and GED preparatory, as well as a Type III transitional program. The Strawbridge School serves students in both day and residential programs through a 10-month program with Extended School Year (ESY) during the summer and is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education. Several programs offer varying levels of supports to meet the unique needs of each student and focus on the behavioral, academic, social/emotional, and vocational needs of each child. Vocational programs include culinary, horticulture, and automotive. The Strawbridge School serves preschool through high school students designated with Emotional Disability, Autism, Other Health Impairment, Intellectual Disability, and Specific Learning Disability. The school setting is intentionally small and nurturing to foster a successful educational experience. Using principles of the Trauma Informed Care approach, the program is designed to integrate academic, behavioral, clinical, and vocational goals to prepare students for transition to a less restrictive setting or to complete their school career in a supportive setting. Upon completion of the educational program, students earn a High School Diploma or a Certificate of Completion from their local school system.
