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.
