Cornerstone Special Education Grade School
An outstanding educational experience for every student

Cornerstone has a long history of providing peace of mind for families and a stimulating learning environment for students with special needs.

A small, year-round, nonpublic special education school, Cornerstone serves students with complex cognitive, physical and medical needs. The school is approved by the Rhode Island Department of Education and draws students throughout Rhode Island, nearby Massachusetts and Connecticut.

At Cornerstone, you’ll find a joy-filled atmosphere in which students thrive. At the heart of everything we do, our emphasis is on ability and not disability.

Our dedicated staff surrounds students with the support and inspiration that promote curiosity and the desire to learn. Cornerstone’s standards-based curriculum, The Unique Learning System, creates a rich, multi-sensory learning environment that fully accommodates the needs of students with significant, complex disabilities.
