The Deaf or Hard of Hearing school age classroom program has five (5) self-contained classes located in two school districts. Three elementary classes (K-5) are located at Middlesex Elementary School in Cumberland Valley School District. The middle school (grades 6-8) class is located at Susquehanna Township Middle School. The high school class (grades 9-12) is located at Susquehanna Township High School. School age classes offer instruction in academics and communication skills as outlined in the student's IEP. As appropriate, students are included in some regular education classes (academic & non-academic) with a qualified sign language interpreter. In addition to academic opportunities, the classroom program provides experiences for students to develop pre-vocational, vocational, and independent living skills. Students graduate with a high school diploma from their home school district. A flexible 5-year high school program enables students to take advantage of numerous coursework and experiential options during their secondary educational training.
