About EBC Schools

Esther B. Clark Schools provide transformative education in a caring, therapeutic day school setting where children with emotional and behavioral issues re-engage in learning and develop the positive behaviors necessary to transition back to a more traditional school setting. It’s one of the most successful programs of its kind. We believe in the promise and potential of every child, teen and young adult. Learn more about our program.
