Handicapped seating is available, and the campus is handicapped accessible. However, if you have specific concerns or would like more information, please contact Rita Lalli in the Headmaster’s Office.


When you arrive on campus, Building and Grounds staffers will be visible to help guide you to parking. If you have any handicapped guests or specific concerns, please contact Rita Lalli in the Headmaster’s Office.
