Open Your World

League School for Autism opens a world of opportunities to students with Autism.

Our team of creative, collaborative, and committed special educators creates and implements an individualized curriculum for each student based on their strengths to prepare them for a fulfilling life in a neurodiverse world.

As one of the first schools devoted to Autism in New England, we invoke a pioneering mindset in everything we do, including how we guide our students based on their own vision of their future.

As the only school in Massachusetts to offer the innovative and evidence-based SCERTS® Model, which allows us to strategically customize a curriculum for each student, we are proud to measure success through the individual student’s achievements.

Memorial Day commemorates military personnel who lost their lives defending our country. It's a time to honor those courageous men and women who died in service of the United States Armed Forces. "Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it."

In observance of Memorial Day, League School for Autism will be closed on Monday, May 27th. Regular school operations will resume on Tuesday, May 28th.

Did you know that May is Asian American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander Month? May was chosen to commemorate the immigration of the first Japanese individuals to the US on May 7, 1843. May is also noteworthy for the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. Many of the workers who laid the tracks were immigrants from China.

League School for Autism honors the history, culture, and many contributions made by Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islanders. Join us in celebrating AANHPI Month all May!

June is Pride Month, dedicated to the celebration and commemoration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride. To celebrate Pride month, League School is offering Safe Zone Project workshops for our staff members. The Safe Zone Project (SZP) provides curricula, activities, and other resources surrounding sexuality, gender, and LGBTQ+ education. These sessions will be a safe space for staff who identify as LGBTQ+, an Ally, or just want to grow in their knowledge. At League School, we promote belongingness and solidarity with a focus on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
