Pennsylvania School for the Deaf

Our Mission

The Pennsylvania School for the Deaf educates students to succeed by recognizing and developing individual strengths, building confidence, collaborating with families and communities in a nurturing, dynamic, and language-rich environment steeped in cultural awareness of Deaf, Hearing, and worldwide diversity.
(Adopted by the Strategic Planning Committee, October 2013)

Elementary School

As children transition from the Early Childhood Program into Elementary School, our goal is to help them develop the necessary skills and independence that they will need throughout the rest of their educational journey.

PSD provides a strong academic start for the Elementary student which will set them off on the right path!

Students will also enjoy recess and throughout the week, participate in various "special" classes, such as Physical Education/Health, and Art.

Students also receive special services as mandated by their Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
