League School is committed to introducing pioneering approaches into its day and residential programs. We are one of the first and only schools in Massachusetts to incorporate the SCERTS® Model into our educational curriculum. SCERTS stands for: Social Communication, Emotional Regulation, and Transactional Support (interpersonal and learning supports, and supports to families). SCERTS supports the cornerstone of our educational approach: contextual learning. The model augments our long-standing goal of helping students spontaneously apply relevant skills in different settings in a variety of ways.
