By developing new models of student support, reshaping achievement standards, enhancing Catholic education, and advancing human rights, our research centers and initiatives are at the forefront of educational change.
For more than 50 years, the Campus School at Boston College has educated students ages 3 to 22 with extensive support needs, including complex health care needs. Our private, publicly funded, special education day school is situated in the Lynch School of Education and Human Development on the Boston College campus. Our dedicated educators, therapists, and nurses utilize a transdisciplinary approach to realize the potential in each one of our students.
From prison education to equitable instruction, our initiatives make a difference in the lives of our students and the communities we serve.
