Pre-K Program

The CSDB Early Education Center and preschool programs focus on thematic centers and experiential learning opportunities for students from ages three through seven.  We adapt our curriculum and instruction to meet each student's unique learning and communication styles.  We focus on establishing a strong academic foundation both our deaf/hard or hearing and visually impaired students to foster success in future grades.

The School for the Deaf

The School for the Deaf provides a comprehensive academic program for students who are Deaf or hard-of-hearing in grades PK-12. Teachers challenge each student to achieve his/her potential in a signing environment that promotes the development of language and a positive self-concept. Annually, a team of professionals develops an individualized education plan for each student. The development of language, communication skills, critical thinking skills, appropriate social skills, and application of learned concepts are emphasized. Opportunities to mainstream in areas of strength are provided through a collaborative effort with the local public school districts.

The Employability Program

The transition program at CSDB is designed for students ages 14-21. Students will discover and explore the various opportunities available to them through hands-on instruction, Project Based Learning, guest speakers, and off-campus experiences. As students make progress, they will fine-tune their work abilities, determine job preferences, and learn to become independent.
