The Bancroft School is the leading regional provider of special education programs for children and youth with autism, intellectual and developmental disabilities, ages 3 to 21. For the past 130 years, The Bancroft School has continued to innovate in instruction, therapeutic integration, behavior therapies, individualized programs, life and job skills training and preparation for transition and beyond.
The Bancroft Difference
We focus each student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) on specific, measurable goals which helps each student achieve outstanding results. We not only look at academic progress but progress in:
- Communication skills
- Behavior acquisition
- Behavior reduction
- Participation in skill activities
At Bancroft, we help each person maximize their potential for an active and satisfying life. Achieved through a “person-centered” model of care, we emphasize the strengths of the individual and support them in pursuing their goals and dreams.
The person-centered model also engages the student’s family, friends, staff and community – their circle of support. Parents and other family members, especially, play a key role on the team, and we encourage parents to be active participants in their child’s education and care.
A Master Plan For Our Future
So much more than a relocation of The Bancroft School, The Lindens Center for Autism and Campus Residences, the 80-acre Bancroft Campus at Mount Laurel has been designed to serve the extraordinary needs of special education students, their families and the region’s special needs community.
One Powerful Vision
For children and families, Bancroft is hope – hope for each child to live life to his or her fullest potential.
Delivering on those hopes and dreams is a responsibility we take seriously. It’s why Bancroft has earned a reputation for changing lives. For seeing the potential in every child. For making the impossible possible.
Enrichment & Training Center
Opportunities for recreation and socialization are essential to Bancroft’s goal of creating a holistic learning and living environment.
The Enrichment and Training Center planned for the new campus to expand recreation opportunities for socialization and professional development. It features an activity pool and gymnasium designed for an adaptive PE program with indoor recreation options for student play and interaction.
