Felicity School is a private therapeutic day school committed to the fundamental belief that all students can achieve greatness and be successful in settings that accentuate their skills. Our access to a wide variety of activities and experiences create a unique sense of belonging. By integrating vocational/transition programs, experiential learning, individualized programming, technology, appropriate counseling and support services, we help students develop a sense of self-worth, accept responsibility, and be equipped to make healthy life decisions. Our students will understand ethics and values while developing a strong sense of community. We proudly serve students from grades 6-12.
Why choose us?
Woodshop: Finish what you started
For the 2017-2018 school year Felicity Students can explore what they can accomplish with their hands. Working with wood is a tactile learning experience that brings together hand eye coordination, following procedures, being creative, and the true reward of creating something from a piece of material.
Being Competitive and Humble
Hoop dreams come alive at Felicity! The Chicago Area Alternative Education League(CAAEL) is a wonderful opportunity for our students to compete. First year basketball coach Sol Luskin knows first hand that, “planning, preparation, and execution are the keys to success both on and off the court.”
Lightning in the classroom
Without saying a word, a classroom sends a message to the students about relationship building, communication, and the roles of teachers and students. The first message to my students is that they are in a safe and empathetic environment.
When students walk into the facilities at Felicity School, they are be amazed at the open space and friendly atmosphere. Any negative feelings or anxieties associated with traditional settings fade away.
Felicity School is designed to serve students who are eligible for special education services in the categories of Emotional Disability (ED), Learning Disability (LD), and Other Health Impaired (OHI).
Felicity School is a non-traditional, school environment with open and flexible spaces that ameliorates some of the negative feelings that students might associate with a more traditional school setting. Our student to staff ratio is a maximum of 10 students working with 2 staff members (one certified teacher and one paraprofessional). Related Services staff are available as directed by each student’s Individual Education Plan.
