The Guild provides community-based, special education day and residential school, and adult residential services. Learn more:

In existence since the 1940's, The Guild is a residential school for students ages 6 to 22 years. The Guild serves students with mental health issues, autism, developmental disabilities, and emotional and behavioral challenges. Our unique curriculum spans a variety of subjects, including math, reading, language arts, budgeting, social sciences, personal growth and development, computer, vocational, and employment skills.

With eight residences in the communities of Billerica, Waltham and Watertown, students have many opportunities to regularly interact with neighborhood resources such as local banks, stores and restaurants to hone their social and interpersonal skills. Through this dynamic and supportive approach, each resident has the opportunity to demonstrate newly acquired abilities and learn to manage behaviors. Our goal is to prepare each student with skills they can use long after they graduate.

On a recent day like today (with a rare appearance by the sun) some students from the Guild School's Pine and Maple Houses played a little soccer.

Chief of Admissions & Outreach, Katherine Canada (on the right), attended the Association of Children's Residential Centers annual conference in Portland, Oregon last week. While at the conference she won a $1,000.00 donation raffle for The Guild School!

Parents and guardians of Guild School students came out for an open house last night. Our guests toured the new school building, saw their children's classrooms and support facilities, and took the opportunity to interact with teachers and staff. CEO Thomas Belski and Parent Support Chairperson Maura Peterson spoke to everyone about the wonderful opportunities for students at The Guild School.

Spring time activities for residential Guild School students move indoors when the weather doesn't cooperate. Under the colorful lights at Roller Kingdom everyone had fun gliding across the floor to some of their favorite tunes.

Guild School students from Maple House took a stroll through the woods at Cedar Hill Trails in Waltham this past week.
