A Message From The Superintendent ...

Summer 2015


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


June was a month of celebrations at St. Mary’s School for the Deaf.  Our students’ academic achievements were honored and celebrated at the Elementary and Secondary Awards Days.  Justin LeBlanc, famous Deaf Designer, finalist on Lifetime Television’s Project Runway, and Assistant Professor at North Caroline State University, was the keynote speaker at our commencement exercises.  We are proud of our 100% graduation rate and 100% New York State Regents Diploma rate.


Thank you to all of the stakeholders for making the 2014-2015 school year a success.  We continued to work with the New York State Education Department and legislative leaders to be part of the solution for New York State.  St. Mary’s continues to review and act on the recommendations from the Council of Educational Administrators of Schools for the Deaf (CEASD).  Most importantly, staff, students, and parents continued to work as a team so the students reach their full potential across all settings of our school. 


Summer School begins on Monday, July 6th and runs through Friday, August 14th.


Fall classes will begin on Thursday, September 3rd.


Our doors are always open and we welcome visitors to come and tour our campus.   Please feel free to contact us to make an appointment or to ask any questions you may have about Deaf Education.


Child First!
