Located in the heart of Oakland, Pennsylvania, the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children is a one-of-a-kind educational facility committed to training visually impaired students with additional disabilities.
Since our founding in 1887, WPSBC has provided exceptional educational opportunities to students who face overwhelming obstacles due to sensory loss. Our programming has evolved over the generations in order to meet the communitys needs. Today, more than 170 students attend our on-campus program which is designed for students with visual impairment coupled with other serious physical and cognitive disabilities.
In addition, WPSBC offers vital Outreach services and programs to babies, toddlers and school-age students with visual impairments currently attending their local schools.
