The Carol and Frank Biondi Education Center

We make school a positive experience for students.

Students with learning disabilities, emotional disorders, autism, and/or other health impairments are surrounded with the academic and therapeutic support they need. Parents who send their children to Biondi can take pride in their child’s academic and emotional growth and feel confident that they’ve made the right choice for their child.

A solid academic foundation.

The Biondi Education Center supports students so that they can reach their Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals. We participate in the K-12 New York State Next Generation Learning Standards.

Strong emotional support.

Licensed and certified psychologists, social workers, and crisis intervention specialists work with students individually and as a group. Students gain a strong and positive sense of themselves.

Plans tailored to each student.

We start with each student’s strengths and interests and build our support to fit that student. In turn, he or she is more interested in learning and less overwhelmed by school.


We transform students

We support students K-12 whose ability to learn is impacted by behavioral and emotional challenges, learning disabilities, autism, and/or other health impairments. We keep our classes small and give each student the individual attention and encouragement that he or she needs to be successful in school.

The Biondi Education Center is a state-approved 853 New York State Education Department-accredited, year-round special education school.

  • I wish I knew about Biondi earlier. We had to home school our son because his behavior was so bad. But once we got him to Biondi, he made ‘Student of the Month’ twice! We couldn’t believe it!

  • When I came to Biondi Elementary School in fifth grade, I couldn’t read. In one year, I could read. From that day on, I told myself that I could do anything!

  • My son still couldn’t read in the second grade. At Biondi, he began to recognize letters by the middle of third grade. Now he reads everything he sees! He reads to me every night.
