Students attending Archbishop Ryan Academy for the Deaf are educated by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and dedicated lay staff teachers. The school's mission is to provide a spiritual environment with education based on faith and centered upon language. This philosophy recognizes that each child is endowed with diverse and valuable gifts and focuses on teaching language development combined with American Sign Language. The teachers encourage, and nurture each child's potential, empowering students to become successful members of the society in which they live and work.
