Discover the opportunities for all learners through our programs and services

REACH provides comprehensive educational programming for children ages five to 18 with significant global delays and medical needs. We utilize an integrated and embedded therapy model and a transdisciplinary approach to ensure that each student is engaged in active and meaningful learning. We offer a 180-day school-year program and a six-week extended school-year program in the summer. The REACH program comprises four classrooms that are housed in age-appropriate schools within our member districts.

Each classroom is staffed by a Special Education Teacher, Registered Nurse, and one paraeducator for every two students.
