Monarch School of New England

2019 Goals:

Over the past three to five years, the Monarch School of New England has grown into a regional school with two campuses, an elementary/middle school and a high school/vocational center. As a result, student enrollment has increased to 63 and staff numbers have increased to over 100.  To address the continued demand for our services, our 2019 goals are that we become even better at what we do. Our goal is to go deeper into our work — to remember our beginnings and to build upon our roots of unique programming designed to meet the needs of every student that attends the Monarch School of New England. While building upon our uniqueness, another key goal in 2019 is to ensure that our high school students have the skills and opportunity to transition to some type of community work or service when they graduate.

Fundraising Events:

The Monarch School of New England offers several events throughout the calendar year as fundraising opportunities, including a walk-a-thon, Bike Ride & Walk and Motorcycle Ride. There are opportunities for sponsors and participants available. Additionally, the Monarch School of New England welcomes partnerships with local businesses, who host Vocational Program students for community-based job placements and frequently support the school with financial or in-kind donations. 

Giving Opportunities:

The Monarch School of New England’s philosophy is to provide unlimited possibilities for students with special needs. The school is known for excellence in academic, therapeutic, functional life skills and vocational programming for students with special needs. The school is grateful for gifts of any size, which benefit the innovative supports and opportunities that put the school’s philosophy into action.  More information about current opportunities to support the school can be found at Online giving is available, or checks can be made payable to: Monarch School of New England, P.O.

Volunteer Opportunities:

Volunteers are welcome in a variety of capacities at the Monarch School of New England. Students benefit from the opportunity to learn from, and interact with community members who are invested in supporting the potential of students with disabilities. Examples of volunteer opportunities include peers from public high schools joining monthly social groups, community members assisting at recreational activities such as adaptive ski, supporting special events or contributing to a special building project. Interested potential volunteers should contact the school to explore the possibilities for service that would best fit their unique talents, skills and availability.
