The Bancroft School
More Than a Classroom
Students at The Bancroft School are empowered by teachable moments throughout each day. Academic instruction goes beyond traditional subjects to include daily living and social skills. Art, music, and drama classes, 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.
The Welsh Campus
The Bancroft School is located on the 80-acre Bancroft Raymond and Joanne Welsh Campus in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, along with the Lindens Neurobehavioral Program and Campus Residences. It is expertly designed to serve the extraordinary needs of special education students ages 12 to 21 and their families from the region and around the country.
About The Bancroft School
Bancroft works with a child's individual needs, empowering them to live their best lives.
Focus on the Whole Family
A person-centered model engages the student’s family, friends, staff, and community – their circle of support – with the school team. Parents and other family members play a key role in setting goals and contributing to the Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
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 opportunities to reach their full potential.
