This program was launched in September 2018 and brings an innovative multi-sensory approach to youth delivering academics, peer integration, social and life skills. The Archway School at Cooper’s Poynt serves elementary age students (ages 5-13) primarily in the Camden City and surrounding school districts. The objective is to focus on each child’s strengths while providing positive developmental supports to those with behavioral, emotional, intellectual and/or multiple disabilities.
