St. Michael Special School


1522 Chippewa Street
New Orleans, LA 70130


Since 1965, St. Michael Special School has educated students age five through adulthood with intellectual and developmental disabilities (i.e. those with mild to moderate disabilities, including autism, ADHD, developmental delay, Down Syndrome, multiple disabilities, and other health impaired). The curriculum includes religion, reading, language arts, math, science, social studies, computer, creative arts, culinary science, vocational training, independent living, community integration, industrial arts, physical education, theatre, sign language, and music. As a leader in special education, the school provides for the development of the whole child—academically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually—regardless of his or her disability.
