The League School of Greater Boston is a leading private day and residential school for students ages 3 to 22 diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder.

Our year-round, private educational program offers a full range of social, academic, behavioral and community-life-skills curricula to meet the individual strengths and needs of a diverse population.

The SCERTS model provides a consistent focus on the key challenges facing people with autism, proven support techniques for educators and families, a common language, and a research-based assessment.

The League School’s residential program is open in Norwood and Walpole 365 days a year and is licensed for up to 20 residents.

Our clinical services focus on helping students regulate their emotions through identifying their feelings and helping to appropriately express themselves.

At League School, we believe that if students are given the right set of challenges and supportive strategies, they will grow and achieve success.
