Catholic Charities - The Kennedy School

The Kennedy School is a private day school educating children, adolescents and young adults ages 5 to 22 with a primary diagnosis of intellectual disability. We serve students referred from the D.C. public school system who are in need of a more focused and specialized learning environment. In addition to an intellectual disability, our students may exhibit multiple needs, including speech and language disorders, emotional disorders, and fine and gross motor issues. Our students receive academic, transitional and therapeutic services that foster independence and lifelong learning.




Intake: Students may be enrolled at Kennedy by referral only. Students who complete the intake process and are appropriate for the program are placed at Kennedy by OSSE. OSSE will also cover the student's tuition. To refer a student to the Kennedy School, please forward the following materials:
Evaluations: Psychological, Educational, Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy and/or Physical Exam (only evaluations performed within the last 3 years will be accepted)
Other information deemed important by the referring agency
