A commitment to our community is an essential aspect of our School.  By sponsoring various events, hosting community oriented activities and donating time to assist other non-profits, we look to expand our collaborations with other local businesses and organizations.

The Scranton School for Deaf & Hard of Hearing Children is proud to continue offering American Sign Language (ASL) I, II, and III courses at our South Abington Township campus and in Wilkes Barre.

  • ASL I – students will develop basic finger spelling, vocabulary and grammar skills.
  • ASL II – students will continue to work on skills learned in ASL 1, while progressing into conversation skills.
  • ASL III – This class will provide an evaluation of each student’s communication skills, and focus on individual needs.  Attention to advanced grammar and signs will be emphasized and will include dialogues that involve asking, empathizing, negotiation, agreeing and disagreeing.Each class will learn about deaf culture and learn new ways to interact with deaf and hard of hearing individuals and their respective communities.


Registration is now open for the 2020 Spring Session of ASL Classes.  The Scranton School is pleased to offer American Sign Language classes at three convenient locations in the community.


In light of the current situation with the Coronavirus and with an abundance of caution for our students and teachers in the community ASL classes, the spring session has been cancelled and all registrations fees will be refunded this week. 

Thank you for your interest in The Scranton School’s ASL program.  We hope to see you in a future classes.


Anyone freshman year of high school and older is welcome to sign up.  Please note that refunds are not available if you have attended at least one class.  If you have any questions or need more information please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Hannah Hart.
