Help us make a difference in the lives of children with special needs

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!


It can be overwhelming for families to deal with the challenges presented by a child with special needs. The Calais School was founded in 1970 to help families meet those challenges on every level by providing a safe, nurturing environment for each child to learn, grow, and improve.

The Calais School is a state-approved provider of special education for students with special needs ages 3 to 21. The school serves students in grades K through 12 Plus with multiple learning disabilities including ADHD, reading and math weaknesses, and anxiety, mood, behavior and autism spectrum disorders. The Calais School provides a safe, nurturing and academically challenging environment for students requiring new behavioral and academic strategies in a non-judgmental atmosphere.

Our goal is to be the best at helping children fulfill their potential. At the Calais School we focus on what each child can do, helping them turn "can't" into "can". We know every child has strengths, gifts, and potential and are committed to cultivating the potential of every student.

Won't you help us make a difference, one child at a time?
