When can parents visit? We welcome parents and legal guardians to visit their child at Benedictine. Upon a new student’s admission, we do request that visitation wait for two weeks to give the student time to adjust to their new daily schedules and routines. We encourage the parents and caregivers to call, send mail, email and/or skype. When planning a visit during the school day or during a residential evening or weekend, we ask that the parent contact our school office prior to the visit and speak with their child’s case manager so we can be sure the student is on campus, not on an outing when the parent arrives.
Will my child have a roommate? We have a few single rooms, but most rooms are doubles shared by two students.
Can my child bring their favorite stuffed animals, photo albums, CD player, favorite comforter, favorite toys, etc? Your child can bring any of the items listed. We want him or her to feel at home.
How are the students funded? Students are funded by their school systems, social services, Autism Waiver, Voluntary Placement for residential, private pay, or a combination of these sources.
