Mission Statement

Our mission is to enhance the lives of Deaf and Hearing children and their families living with communication and developmental challenges by providing comprehensive educational and communication rich programs.


The Beverly School for the Deaf (BSD), founded in 1876, is the regional leader in providing for the education, communication and socialization needs of Deaf and hard of hearing children and their families. In the 1970s, the school expanded its mission from serving Deaf and hard of hearing children and began accepting hearing children with communication challenges and deaf children with learning and developmental disabilities. Later, the school began an expansion of its services to children with autism, developmental delays and other disabilities under the umbrella of communication challenges. In 2008, with a student population of 60% Deaf/hard of hearing and 40% hearing, the school formally changed its’ name to The Children’s Center for Communication (CCC). BSD continues as a specialized program and integral component of the mission of CCC.

CCC/BSD is fully accredited and licensed by the State of Massachusetts Board of Education. The school provides highly specialized academic programs to support the individual learning and communication needs of students from birth through age 22 and includes preschool, elementary, middle and high school students. Summer and after school programs provide student enrichment and opportunities for continued language and communication development. Additional programs include the Parent/Infant/Toddler program, district wide school consulting, outreach programs and American Sign Language instruction for infants and children, adults, families and the community.

Today, CCC/BSD provides a communication and language-rich environment with challenging academic, therapeutic and social activities designed to support learning, leadership, real-world experience, artistic abilities and work experience learning in a variety of settings. We cherish our diversity and value each child.
