Mission

The Caroline School provides unique educational services to meet the physical, social and cognitive needs of individuals ages 0-21 with multiple disabilities, including those who have additional medical needs.

TCS Page Teaching 01About

At the Caroline School, abilities, rather than disabilities, dictate the pace and path that each student follows. With an average class size of eight learners and a staff to student ratio of 1:4, teachers are able to meet every student at their level.

• Students are given the physical support necessary to engage in brain and body integration.

• Students build meaningful intrapersonal (emotions, myself, and I) and interpersonal (peers and adults) relationships.

• Students focus on the cognitive skills that are most pivotal to their short and long-term development.

By investing the time and attention for every student to feel safe, secure, and cared for, no matter their challenges, an environment conducive to happy and healthy lifelong learners is created.

 History

The Caroline School was born in 2002 out of a mother’s desperate need for a high quality education for children with significant disabilities. Elizabeth DeLuca, joyful and charasmatic mother of 4, had been searching for years to find a school that addressed the complex needs of her youngest daughter, Caroline. 
After experiences with ABA, a multitude of therapies, and home schooling, Elizabeth knew what she and Caroline needed. They needed a school that saw the strengths of Caroline, not only her challenges. A school that would show her love, inspire her to reach for more, and pay attention to the whole child that Caroline was. When her search ran dry, she decided to create the Caroline School. A unique school designed for smaller more individualized learning that would reach every student’s physical, social and cognitive needs, no matter the level of ability.
