Description For 60 years, the mission of Benedictine has been to help people with developmental disabilities achieve their greatest potential. Today, Benedictine provides more than 200 children and adults with special education, vocational training, supported employment and home like residential living options on our main campus and in the community.

Our values of Dignity of Work, Compassionate Caring and Hospitality serve as the driving force throughout the organization and directly support our mission. These values and our mission will continue to guide us and assure our future success in meeting the needs of children and adults with developmental disabilities.

The Benedictine School is a non-graded, twelve-month residential and day school for males and females, ages 5-21, grades K-12 with mild-severe intellectual disabilities, multiple disabilities, and autism.

Behavioral characteristics of students appropriate for admission may include those with limited or no communication skills, impulsivity, short attention span, poor judgment, resistance to change, difficulty making transitions, difficulty developing and maintaining relationships, repetitive behaviors, and obsessive insistence on sameness of routine. Also appropriate are prospective students with limited adaptive behaviors in some, or all of the following areas: functional academics, self-care, social skills, home living, health and safety, self-direction, vocational and employment needs.

Referrals may be made by Boards of Education, Departments of Social Services, other human service agencies, private professionals or parents.

While each student is reviewed and evaluated on an individual basis, the following programming needs are not available at the Benedictine School: substance abuse treatment, the deaf/blind; severe sex offenders; fire starters or those requiring a secure facility.

The Benedictine Open Community/Adult Services Program supports persons ages 21 and over with developmental disabilities. Participants explore vocational interests, engage in job development, and build skills in industries of choice within a supportive environment designed to assist in finding competitive employment in the community or in volunteer positions. Community living and independent living skills are also provided and our beautifully decorated group homes provide a comfortable home environment in attractive and safe neighborhoods for those participating in our adult residential program.
