NHS Human Services Revitalizes Former St. Anne’s School in Philadelphia

NHS Human Services reopened the St. Anne’s Parish School to serve students with autistic and emotional needs, and to brighten up a neighborhood

PHILADELPHIA, PA – NHS Human Services, a leading provider of education and human services, hosted an open house and ribbon cutting at the newly renovated St. Anne’s School. After a year of renovations and upgrades to the 161 year old school, NHS will reopen the doors this fall to children, ages 5-21, with autism and emotional support needs. Located in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia, local residents of the community surrounding St. Anne’s Parish have been overwhelmingly supportive of the school’s reopening.


Closed in June 2011, the St. Anne’s School had been a fundamental pillar and symbol of hope in the community. The restoring of St. Anne’s School is another example of the positive revitalization and growth that has been occurring throughout Port Richmond in recent years. As the 19th NHS School in Pennsylvania, NHS School St. Anne’s will provide services for students with autism and emotional support needs. The school features specialized behavioral programs including individualized education plans, anti-bullying, trauma informed care, transition into adulthood, and much more.
