Marie Philip School
Marie Philip School, enrolling children in preschool through grade 12 and up to 22 years of age, is a day and residential school that provides highly individualized education and a broad range of support services for over 200 deaf and hard of hearing students. We offer a language-rich, bilingual-bicultural environment where both American Sign Language and English are used in instruction.

Through the use of the Casey Life Skills Curriculum and working closely with TLC’s Transition Services and the Career and Technology Education Program, the residential program provides structure and community-based opportunities for students to master the following skills:
Open Monday after school through Friday morning (following the academic calendar), each residence has laundry access, a kitchen, and a computer lab.
