The Frost School is a day school that provides special education services for elementary, middle, and high school students with emotional and behavioral disorders and Autism. Students with other disabilities such as learning disabilities, mild mental retardation, speech/language impairments, and other health impairments are also accepted, if their individual needs can be met in the Frost milieu. The school contains four different programs each providing a supportive and structured environment integrating specialized academic instruction, counseling, transition services, and behavioral modification specific to each student population. Frost School is approved as a Special Education School by the Maryland State Department of Education and serves students from Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Classes are small and students receive instruction based on their IEP (Individualized Education Program) and the Maryland State Curriculum.

The Therapeutic Community Program: The Therapeutic Community program serves elementary, middle, and high school students utilizing a group model. Special education and counseling are integrated within the milieu. Students are taught communication, personal accountability, problem solving, social skills, and relationship building skills through the daily group counseling sessions and community meetings. Students also participate in family counseling once a week.

The Lodge Program: The Lodge program serves high school students with emotional and behavioral disorders and high functioning Autism. A comprehensive range of treatment is carefully integrated into the educational plan for each student including individual psychotherapy, weekly group psychotherapy, family therapy and/or parent casework.

The Oakmont Primary Program: The Oakmont Primary Program provides special education and related services to children ages 5 – 15 with autism, pervasive developmental disorders (PDD), developmental delays in one or more areas, severe behavioral problems, multiple learning problems and other related disorders.

The Oakmont Secondary Program: The Oakmont Secondary Program serves adolescents with Autism and Asperger’s disorders who are expected to earn a high school diploma but may require more structure than what is provided by the other two Frost programs. Students receive more individualized support, social skills training and have specific behavior plans as they gradually integrate into the Therapeutic Community Program or the Lodge Program.
