THIS IS A MANDATORY READ FOR ALL STUDENTS AND FAMILIES.
The mission of The Siena School is to provide an outstanding education to bright, college-bound students with language-based learning differences. We have developed an educational program and learning environment specifically designed for the unique needs of these students. Therefore, our program is most appropriate for students who exhibit all of the following characteristics:
Are bright, college-bound students.
Have mild to moderate language-based learning needs.
Are of average to above-average abilities.
Are emotionally healthy and behaviorally appropriate.
Whether you’re a new or a long-time Siena parent, you’ve always been a strong advocate for your child. Now, we need you to also use your dedication to advocacy and speaking out to help build the larger Siena community.
Here are some ways to keep being a Siena advocate:

Siena provides first-hand experiences to make learning come alive. Siena students participate in school-based community service programs and also earn service-learning credit through independent work and internships. Siena students must earn 60 hours of service-learning to fulfill graduation requirements. Access the Siena Student Learning (SSL) Hours Form here.
Each year, Siena high school students undertake a two-week volunteer internship that provides them with a work-based learning experience, requiring them to apply their personal skills and interests to a professional environment. Learn more here.
Siena provides in-depth and individualized college advising. Our students explore a variety of colleges and universities that offer support for students with learning differences. Our goal is to assist each student in finding a good match with the proper support upon enrollment. Learn more here.
