Established in 1909 and based on the Catholic tradition expressed through the compassion and dedication of the Dominican Sisters of Blauvelt, Lavelle School for the Blind is a multicultural educational institution for students who are blind or visually impaired and students with other disabilities.

Through an emphasis on functional academics, independence in life skills and development of positive self images, students are prepared in its day program to participate in all aspects of community life. Support and training for families is also integral to the Lavelle School program. In addition, the Lavelle School offers an inclusive preschool program for children with and without visual impairments.
