Who we are
For more than fifty years, the Campus School at Boston College has educated students ages 3 to 21 with multiple disabilities, including complex health care needs. Our publicly funded, private, special education day school is situated in the Lynch School of Education and Human Development on the Boston College campus. The benefits of being on the Boston College campus are immeasurable, including state of the art facilities, teachers from the Lynch School's Severe Special Needs graduate program, and a thriving University undergraduate volunteer program. Educators utilize a transdisciplinary approach that includes teachers, therapists, and medical professionals working together and with families to provide a personalized approach to special education.
