Education

 

St. Lucy Day School for Children with Visual Impairments is the only Catholic school for children with visual impairments in the state of Pennsylvania.

Giving Hope to Kimberly

We have had three generations attend St. Lucy’s Day School for Children with Visual Impairments. My mother was part of the first graduating class, I started here in Kindergarten and now my daughter, Kimberly, attends St. Lucy’s.

At birth, Kimberly was diagnosed with congenital motor nystagmus. I knew there was no other place for her to go - she was coming here to St. Lucy’s. I knew she would get the Catholic education I wanted for her and they would be able to help her in any way she needed. They have the technology and equipment that Kimberly needs; if she is having an issue everything is here for her. The kids at St. Lucy’s also integrate over to Holy Innocents for regular classes, for lunch, and in the school yard.

I don’t know what I would have done without this school. St. Lucy’s is a place to learn and grow, but more than that, it’s a family. You are welcome here with open arms. St. Lucy’s needs Catholic Charities Appeal (CCA) continued support because things are changing every year with new technology. If I had to pay for Kimberly’s tuition out of pocket, I don’t know what I would do. St. Lucy’s wouldn’t be here without the CCA. They funded when my mom started school here, when I was here, and now they fund for my daughter.

These kids are going to have a brighter future because of St. Lucy’s. It’s my hope that CCA continues to support the school and the wonderful work they do for these children.
