Genesee Lake School offers day school, residential treatment, and respite opportunities.

Day School

The day school program at Genesee Lake School is designed for students needing a more structured and responsive environment than they are finding in their current school, while still allowing for the student to return home each day.

Residential School

For students living on our campus, Genesee Lake School offers a highly-structured, therapeutic environment designed to help gain the experience and skills necessary to find success. We offer both single bedroom dorm and group home options, depending on the needs of the student.

Homegrown Farms

Homegrown Farms is located on the campus of Genesee Lake School. The mission of Homegrown Farms is to enrich the lives of Genesee Lake School students through year round educational, vocational, and therapeutic opportunities focusing on a connection with the natural world, food production, and the dignity of meaningful work.

Our Mission Statement

Genesee Lake School’s mission is to provide an individualized, person-centered, integrated team approach to care and services. We emphasize positive behavioral support, therapeutic relationships, and developmentally appropriate practices to support each student’s goals. Genesee Lake School strives to help students learn to live and succeed in a community-based, less restrictive environment.
