Request A Family Tour

Each tour is customized to the age of the Deaf student and the interests of the family. As part of the tour, your family will have the opportunity to meet with teachers and administrators. You will observe classrooms, programs, and if applicable visit the cottages to learn about the after-school programs for residential students. The tour will provide a wonderful opportunity for your family to see our classrooms in action; ask questions; and meet our wonderful students, teachers and administrators.
