About Us

Delrey School serves children ages 2 to 21 throughout central Maryland and is conveniently located in a spacious, fully accessible, state-of-the-art facility just minutes from the Baltimore Beltway and I-95 in Lansdowne, Md. The school provides comprehensive services to children with multiple disabilities, combining a rigorous academic curriculum with the latest therapeutic techniques and communication strategies to help students better engage in learning.

The children’s services division of Unified Community Connections opened in 1964 when it established the Delrey School. Since opening its original campus in Catonsville, Md., the school has become one of the cornerstones of Unified Community Connections’ wide array of programs and services for children and adults with disabilities. In addition to the special education program, the Delrey School offers many other essential services including physical, occupational , and speech-language therapy; assistive technology and adaptive equipment; therapeutic feeding; nursing; wheelchair evaluation; extra-curricular activities; and community daycare.

Delrey School is a nonpublic school certified by the Maryland State Department of Education and provides a challenging academic program based on the Baltimore County Public School Curriculum. In compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA), both academic and functional performance outcomes are included in each student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP).

Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.  — Sir Winston Churchill, British politician (1874 - 1965)
