Residential/Day Students

Students who reside on the main campus Monday – Friday may select from a variety of after-school activities.  Day students may participate in all athletic and after-school activities if parents arrange for transportation to and from the activities.


Activities in the After-School Program are adapted to meet the needs of each student and to make sure each student can participate in the activity. The activities are fun and designed to challenge the highly skilled as well as the physically and mentally challenged students.


There are no fees for the After-School Program at the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind. These activities are funded by a combination of state allocations and private donations. Student athletes may incur some costs for meals when traveling.
