Welcome from the Executive Director, Jeffrey S. Bravin
Dear Friends of ASD:
This is truly an historic moment in the life of the American School for the Deaf. As we approach the 200th Anniversary of Deaf Education in America and the founding of ASD, we are taking the time to reflect on our rich history, while keeping our eyes on the future.
We welcome you to learn about our remarkable school and the programs and services we provide to deaf and hard of hearing children, adults and their families. Our primary goal is to restore ASD to national prominence as the preeminent academic center for deaf education. We have reached out to area colleges and universities to partner with us to develop best practices in a number of disciplines. We want to instill a sense of pride and confidence in our students and have them leave us with a roadmap they can follow to a successful future. Please take a look at the current American Era to read about all of the exciting things happening at ASD both in and out of the classroom.
Our new state-of-the-art Gallaudet-Clerc Education Center opened its door last September and we are seeing the positive energy that this new building generates with our students and faculty. The GCEC is packed with the latest technology and security, and provides our students with a learning environment that was specifically designed to meet their unique learning styles.
It is through the commitment of people like you that ASD has been able to serve thousands of deaf and hard of hearing children and will continue to thrive in the future. Thank you for your friendship and support.
Jeffrey S. Bravin
