Sassafras Program

A Safe, Happy Space for K-4 Students with Autism

Here at TQS, we believe that there is the Light of God within every person, and that we are meant to share that Light through our efforts, our gifts, and our actions. 

To ensure that every student has that opportunity, including those students whose Autism is more challenging than the general TQS population, we created the Sassafras Program, a highly structured, self-contained K-4 classroom that focuses on behavior regulation and social skill acquisition. 

The goal: for each child to develop the skills they need to succeed as a fully integrated member of the TQS community.  

Now in its first year of operation, the Sassafras Program is based on the premise that students need to build positive relationships, feel positive emotions, and develop a sense of control and purpose in order to learn. It offers students a predictable structure and a supportive environment, with academic engagement tailored to meet each child’s specific needs.

Summer Enrichment Program

Learning doesn’t end with the school year at The Quaker School. Our Summer Enrichment Program helps children with complex challenges in grades K-4 develop their language arts, math and social skills during the summer.
