The Illinois School for the Deaf is an integral part of the statewide
continuum of services for children who are deaf or hard of hearing!
We serve students ages 3 to 21, from preschool through the 12th grade, and we also have a program designed specifically for infants and toddlers in the surrounding area who are deaf or hard of hearing. If your senior high school student determines that he or she would benefit from additional coursework or vocational training and elects to postpone receiving a diploma, we have a transitional program designed to meet those needs.
The mission of the Illinois School for the Deaf is to educate students who are deaf or hard of hearing to be responsible, self-supporting citizens.
