Arch Bridge Selected as NASET School of Excellence

The Arch Bridge School at Wellspring, a leader in therapeutic education, has been honored as a 2012-2013 National Association of Special Education Teachers (NASET) School of Excellence.

Bestowed upon only a few select qualified licensed schools in the state of Connecticut, the School of Excellence award is NASET’s highest level of recognition and is presented to schools that meet rigorous professional criteria and have demonstrated exceptional dedication, commitment and achievement in the field of special education.

“We strive to provide the highest level of academic support to youth who are struggling with emotional issues and learning disabilities,” shares Ralph Scafariello, Director of Education at The Arch Bridge School at Wellspring. “We are honored to be selected as a School of Excellence and feel that this is a direct reflection of the hard work and dedication of our staff and community supports.”

The Arch Bridge School at Wellspring serves children in grades 1-12 and has earned multiple commendations from the State of Connecticut’s Department of Education. The school offers academics and college preparatory courses, allowing students to meet their unique academic objectives while in our day school or residential treatment programs. The Arch Bridge School has a long history of success in serving youth with emotional and psychological issues along with learning vulnerabilities.

At Wellspring and The Arch Bridge School youth develop the skills and resources they need to return to a public school setting, return to home, or enroll in college.
