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.Contact Us
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.
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.
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.

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.
As the new year approaches and I reflect on Keshet’s mission, I know without a shadow of a doubt that we will get there—all communal spaces will be inclusive and welcoming to people with disabilities.
Almost fifty years after her first time going to overnight camp, Michelle is now experiencing what camps are like when they partner with Keshet. She’s finding more than just inclusion; it is true belonging.
