Evolution in Learning

Archbishop Damiano School is an approved non-profit Private Special Education School in Westville, NJ that provides services to over 135 students with cognitive disabilities and offers effective special education programs and therapies for students ages 3 – 21. ADS programs focus on cultivating student ability, nurturing talent, developing new skills, and fostering an environment where students are given a voice for choice. 

Archbishop Damiano School recognizes the monarch butterfly as a symbol for hope, change, and life’s journey. The transformation from a caterpillar to a butterfly is synonymous to the journey of our students at Archbishop Damiano School. Butterflies begin their lives as caterpillars, miraculously form a chrysalis and after some time, become the best versions of themselves.

For the uniquely abled community, this transformative time is crucial to the developmental stages in life, but our students do not have to endure this journey without support and guidance along the way. Our ADS staff are enthusiastic experts in their field and committed to our students’ development. From their first school experience to preparing for life after school, Archbishop Damiano School is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of our students.
