Supportive special education from preschool through transition

At Keshet’s therapeutic day schools, we foster caring communities where students ages 3 to 22 learn and grow. Educators and therapists work hand-in-hand to provide highly individualized instruction and therapies to meet the unique needs of each student. From preschool through high school transition, Keshet’s schools prepare students for a life of independence.

Encouraging independence by meeting individual needs

Our students

Keshet’s schools serve students with a range of intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities as well as social-emotional disorders. While we can and do provide traditional Jewish day school education, our student community represents diverse cultural and religious backgrounds.

Personalized instruction

Keshet’s curriculum is dual-focused on academic and daily living skills. Teachers use the structured teaching model to provide each student with an individualized program that meets their academic, physical, functional, social and emotional needs.

Welcoming communities

Our schools live within larger host schools. This arrangement allows for inclusion during nonacademic times and, when appropriate, academic classes. Our robust Peer Buddy Programs help facilitate inclusion into the mainstream of school life.

Transition to adulthood

The Coe-Worker Keshet Transition Program is designed to provide the necessary support to ease young adults into community life after high school. Keshet’s curriculum continues students’ growth in daily living skills, social and vocational skills. Keshet has a vast network of community partners that welcome Keshet’s young adults for job training opportunities. As students approach 22 years-old, Keshet staff prepare young adults and families to transition to a day program or job setting.
