MISSION: St. Rita School for the Deaf is a Catholic school, educating students of all faiths, in a Christ-centered, barrier-free communication environment through individualized instruction, personal attention, and direct communication.

SERVING OUR COMMUNITY: St. Rita School for the Deaf provides equitable educational services for students to thrive in an environment where they are given the opportunity to learn to communicate, be understood, and express themselves.

The school focuses on the development of the whole child by providing direct communication, personal attention, small class sizes, and individual instruction. Life skills and social-emotional learning are a part of students’ schedules.

General education as well as special education services are provided by licensed teachers of the deaf and intervention specialists. Related services are provided by four speech and language therapists, an audiologist, a registered nurse, and a school counselor.

Technology driven classroom environments include Hearing Assistive Technology (HAT), classroom with Smart Boards, and 1:1 technology devices for students.
