VSDB Department for the Blind
Our focus is on the whole child. VSDB serves both residential and day students with blindness or visual impairments, and with multiple disabilities.
We offer a comprehensive educational program throughout the continuum of learning from kindergarten through 12th grade, and beyond that through workforce transition programs.
We are student centered. By building on the gifts, strengths, interests, and unique needs of each student, VSDB helps individual students maximize their potential and meet their personal goals.
We organize a team: You know your child, and we know education. That’s why we work collaboratively with families, local school divisions, and the Virginia Department for the Blind and Visually Impaired to ensure that students have the benefit of all available insight, resources, and support.
We are academically strong. Our course content meets the statewide standards of the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs) and prepares students to succeed in higher education, in the workforce, and in their communities.
