About Us

The Frost School is a non-public, special education day school serving students age five to 21 with emotional and behavioral disabilities and autism spectrum disorder. The Frost School, part of the Sheppard Pratt Health System, contains several programs each providing a supportive and structured environment to integrate specialized academic instruction, counseling, transition services, and behavioral modification specific to each student population. All of our programs offer small classes, related services, psychiatric services, and academic curriculum adapted to the needs of each student. We offer vocational training, internship opportunities, and transition services for students starting in middle and high school.
