Welcome to Chamberlain International School, a co-educational therapeutic boarding and day school, serving students ages 11-22 from Massachusetts, across the United States, and throughout the world. Since 1976 the beliefs of our Founders who are still here on a daily basis continue on. It is what guides us each and every day with each and every individual student and that mission is to provide comprehensive and intensive therapeutic programming in an environment which inspires academic success and personal growth. We motivate and support our students throughout their school experience and teach them to recognize, nurture and celebrate their individual strengths as they prepare for life. We see the brightness and uniqueness in all of our students and we focus our energy on developing those positive qualities and abilities. Students who attend Chamberlain can feel a sense of home on a peaceful and picturesque campus of historic buildings surrounding a traditional New England village green.
Chamberlain International School is proud to be a diploma granting institution fully licensed in accordance with the standards set forth by The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. As such we meet the rigorous standards set forth in the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. We offer college preparatory and general education courses to both middle and high school students. A strong focus of our academic program is on meeting the skills required in the core academic subjects: Literature, Writing, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. Additionally, our students benefit from additional studies in Foreign Language, Visual Arts, Automotive Technology, Physical Education, Health, and Study Skills.
The Chamberlain International School serves a diagnostically diverse student population. Our students have a wide range of learning and emotional challenges, including, but not limited to, learning disabilities, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, thought disorders, personality disorders, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder, PTSD, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Vocationally oriented students are offered instruction designed to prepare them for future vocational studies or entrance into the world of work. For students who will receive academic instruction centered on a successful transition to work and independent living, our faculty use the nationally recognized Life Centered Career Education program. Other students will participate in Chamberlain’s Integrated Vocational Training Program. In this program, Chamberlain’s Vocational Coordinator works individually with identified students to map out a plan for future employment and training by helping students identify areas of interest, and seeking out internships to gain valuable work experience.
