A Message from the Superintendent...


August 2014

Dear St. Mary’s School for the Deaf Stakeholders:

Our 2014 Summer School Program continues to provide unlimited opportunities for our students to reach their full potential across all settings.  Staff, parents, and students continue to work together to ensure students achieve goals on their Individual Education Plans (IEP).  Our summer work students are busy beautifying the campus.  St. Mary’s School for the Deaf looks great inside and out! 

Our stakeholders remain committed to the recommendations of the Conference of Educational Administrators of Schools for the Deaf (CEASD) accreditation and implementation of our Strategic Plan.  Our highly qualified staff will provide a year of innovative programs and enriching afterschool and residential activities.  We are excited to begin our 162nd year of Deaf Education in September.

We welcome visitors to come and see our school and our campus.  We are proud of everything we have accomplished in 161 years and want to share it with Western New York.  Please feel free to contact us to make an appointment for a tour.
