Both girls and boys dorm living options are available at Genesee Lake School. Each student has a furnished, individual room with the opportunity to decorate and make the space comfortable and reflective of his or her own unique personality. The dormitories are all connected to bright and open gathering areas where the students participate in social, recreational, and therapeutic groups.
The Genesee Lake School group homes provide a community based setting for students seeking a less restrictive environment. Our group home programming focuses on community integration and daily living skills so as to help our students move toward greater independence in their lives. Our children’s group homes are designed for 8 students from ages 12 to 17, while the adult group homes are designed for 6 to 8 students from ages 18 to 22.
All Genesee Lake School students are provided with preventive and routine medical care on campus. Our Medical Director supervises a staff of Registered Nurses and LPNs qualified for the special needs of our students. Our staff is complemented by a consulting psychiatrist, weekly physician visits, and bi-monthly visits from a neurologist. Medical treatment is also available to address special needs such as seizure disorders, genetic disorders, low incidence syndrome disorders, and other accompanying medical issues.
In their free time, Genesee Lake School students take advantage of a wide variety of activities both on and off campus. Students have monthly calendars of current events and, depending on the season, activities can include arts and crafts, nature walks, and field trips throughout the region. In addition, many of our students play basketball, run track, or participate in any number of other sports as members of the Genesee Lake School Special Olympics team.
