Who We Are


    The Hospital School Programs (HSP) is a team of skilled and compassionate educators dedicated to supporting the academic and social-emotional needs of children who are patients within the CHKD Main Hospital, Children’s Pavilion or outpatient clinics.    

    Our staff includes early childhood teachers, elementary teachers, special educators, secondary content teachers, educational consultants, music and art therapists, art and physical education teachers, and an office team.

    We serve children PreK-12 and collaborate with parents, families, and medical staff to foster academic, social, and emotional resilience.

How You Can Benefit

  • Our goal is to foster a positive relationship between families and community resources to support all students in educational success. All students enrolled in the inpatient program will receive attendance credit for their daily participation and inpatient teachers focus first on assignments provided by the home school to keep a student on track as much as possible. School services (direct instruction, consultation, art, and/or music) can provide normalcy to an abnormal environment, and often offer a sense of comfort and support to a student and their family.
