Baker Hall School transforms the lives of our community’s most challenged and challenging students through the highest levels of individual attention in special education, in a day and residential setting. We serve students in grades 3 through 12 who are educationally diagnosed with emotional disturbance, intellectual disability, multiple disabilities or traumatic brain injury.
Dedicated staff foster a trauma-sensitive environment that encourages growth, safety, responsibility, and respectful learning. We begin with the end in mind, with a goal to return the student to their school district, completion of high school, enrollment in college or preparation for employment.
Baker Hall has a robust Work Based Learning (WBL) program for students ages 14+ in order to assist in developing broad, transferable skills for postsecondary education and the workplace. Along with traditional coursework to meet graduation requirements, students will have an opportunity to earn a Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS) credential after completing 200+ hours at a worksite.
Each eligible high school student will be involved in a different “Career Track” (Food Service, Education, Hospitality and Entrepreneurship) while gaining valuable experiences at our 13 different worksites throughout the community.
Sites include: Mazurek's Bakery, WAYCafe, Green Eats, Erie County Botanical Garden, 7Eleven, Crunch Fitness, The Foundry, and more.
Baker Hall School is conveniently located at 777 Ridge Road in Lackawanna. Call (716) 828-9737 for more information.
