JPII: Special Education in Shillington, PA

Everyone has a purpose in life. As a values-based organization, John Paul II Center for Special Learning encourages children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to explore their purpose and reach for goals through unique special education and social programming.

Students ages three to 21 are able to learn and grow throughout our School-Age Program, with the later years focusing on transition and life skills.

We know stability and continuity are important to those with special needs, so we’ve made transition as seamless as possible.

After graduation, students may have the option to move directly to our 21+ Adult Program, giving them the opportunity to continue developing skills while making individual needs a priority.

Like everyone else, people with disabilities have the capacity to make significant contributions to the community and to the world by utilizing their God-given talents. We’re here to help them along the way.

Our Mission

In a safe and nurturing Christian environment, John Paul II Center serves children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities by providing diversified programs.  We acknowledge the dignity of all learners while challenging them on a daily basis to reach their God-given potential.  Our mission is an expression of the Catholic Church’s teaching on the sanctity of human life.

Colossians 3:16

“Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.”
