Enrolling at Biondi
At the Biondi School, special education is special
The Biondi Education Center is for students K-12 with a learning disability, emotional disorder, autism, and/or other health impairment. Biondi is a tuition-free fully accredited, state-approved school that provides year-round specialized education services. With small classes and an individualized curriculum tailored to each student’s needs, students who have not had success in their local public school can thrive at Biondi and can go on to achieve high school graduation.
We work with CSEs / CBST to find the right fit for students.
The Biondi Education Center specializes in supporting students with learning disabilities, emotional disorders, autism, and/or other health impairments, in accordance with each student’s Individual Education Program (IEP). We see evidence of success every day. Children who could not read learn to read; a student expelled from every other school is able to apply himself and becomes
student of the month—twice! LGBTQ youth who have felt isolated find a new home at Biondi and our acclaimed Residential Treatment Center. Young people who have repeatedly stumbled and have stopped dreaming of success realize they can complete school and graduate.
In fact, 100% of Biondi High School graduates go on to college, vocational training, or employment after graduation.
We support Committees on Special Education (CSEs) on achieving the specific goals of each student’s IEP. We also work with the Central Base Support Team (CBST) in New York City and CSEs on referrals. We encourage you to reach out and learn more or even visit to see if Biondi is right for the students you support. There truly is something special here, and we invite you to see it firsthand.
