The Bancroft School

More Than a Classroom

The Bancroft School is a unique educational program that aims to empower students with autism by providing teachable moments throughout their day. In addition to traditional academic subjects, the program also focuses on daily living and social skills. Art and music, along with Adaptive Physical Education and Enrichment activities and an activity pool for water safety, swim instruction, and recreation are all part of the Bancroft experience.

Focus on the Whole Family

A Legacy of Education and Trust

The Bancroft School is a pioneer in the field of special education programs. Since 1883 when Margaret Bancroft first established her school with one student, The Bancroft School has continued to provide children with autism the opportunities to reach their full potential.
