St. Rita School for the Deaf’s primary responsibility is to provide a safe and comfortable living environment for all residential students. Our programs are specifically designed to provide the best possible environment that is free of language barriers, along with opportunities for student growth, development, and achievement.
The residential hall programs emphasize integration, collaboration, and equality in fostering opportunities and experiences in self-education and self-improvement. St. Rita School for the Deaf provides room and board, as well as a living environment that supports the student's academic and personal goals. Any student staying in the dorm is required to comply with our school’s Student Code of Conduct.
Residential Life program goals include providing students the opportunity to assume leadership roles, develop their collaborative abilities and strengthen their social skills. Students have access to a broad range of after-school programs and activities, many of which are open to students as well as local area deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
Tailored to the individual’s needs and interests, St. Rita School for the Deaf’s after school programs effectively support the social and emotional development of each student.
To enhance learning outside of the classroom, many St. Rita School for the Deaf students participate in activities that happen during and after school throughout the year. These activities connect St. Rita School students with the community and with students from other schools.
