The Guild School, which serves individuals ages 6-22 diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities along with concurrent mental health diagnoses, is now accepting referrals for immediate and upcoming residential openings.

Offering flexibility within structure, The Guild promotes the development of academic, social, vocational, and independent living skills through a private, 365-day special education school serving 90 students and 9 group homes for 66 youth.

The Guild School’s educational curriculum focuses on skill development in the areas of communication, sensory integration, positive behavior support, socialization, pre-vocational/vocational, play and self-care. Speech and language therapy, counseling services, occupational therapy, and pre-vocational/vocational support services are important components of the educational process and are delivered in individual, small group and classroom settings.

Students with complex needs thrive by attending The Guild School and living in one of The Guild’s 9 community-based residences. Students benefit from having a single Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and a unified behavior plan that staff members implement both at school and in the residences.

For more information about openings and the referral process, please reach out to Christine Dimmick, Director of Admissions, at or 781-893-6000 x5112.
