LANDENBERG, PA — Yesterday, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health opened the Devereux Day Academy, an Approved Private School, in Landenberg, Pennsylvania.

Devereux Pennsylvania Children’s Services’ Devereux Day Academy will offer a high-quality, innovative special education program for students in grades K-8 with the following primary diagnoses: intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, emotional disturbance, learning disabilities and speech/language impairments.

The Devereux Day Academy’s core curriculum is aligned with the Pennsylvania Core Standards, as well the curricula of Devereux Pennsylvania Children’s Services’ partner school districts. This alignment will facilitate smooth transitions for students to and from the program and their local schools.

“We are excited to provide much-needed educational services for younger students in southern Chester County, many of whom continue to struggle with various impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, including learning loss, absenteeism and mental health challenges,” said Devereux Director of Student Services Colleen Katzenmoyer, Ed.D. “Each student will have an Individualized Education Program, outlining their goals for skill development and strategies for achieving those goals. We will work closely with families and school districts to ensure students can return to their local schools and communities with the tools they need to succeed.”
