What is a Therapeutic School?

At Serendipity, the therapeutic school is a special education program with a primary focus on emotional and behavioral growth. Our program prioritizes academic learning (EDUCATION), progress on individual treatment goals (MENTAL HEALTH), preparing for future success (TRANSITION), and the development of life-long health practices (WELLNESS).

Serendipity’s model of therapeutic education Incorporates the following four pillars.


Serendipity provides individualized instruction and adaptive learning opportunities to students of all abilities, helping those who have struggled in traditional classroom settings to experience academic engagement and success.

Mental Health

The therapeutic services offered at Serendipity integrate clinically designed interventions into the structure of a school day, allowing immediate and constant access to support.


Serendipity’s transition services create a bridge for young people between the K-12 special education system and the world beyond the classroom.


Our Wellness programs develop lifelong health awareness and habits, which are important to everyone and even more critical to students already at risk for health challenges resulting from traumatic or adverse experiences.
