Spring 2020 Remote Learning and Campus Closure

On Tuesday, March 31, Governor Pritzker extended the “stay at home” restrictions for Illinois residents through the end of April. Arlyn School and Arlyn Transition will remain closed to students through at least Thursday, April 30. However, school is “open” virtually, and we will continue implementing our Remote Learning Plan on weekdays for the month of April.

Remote Learning is provided to assure students are able to engage in learning if school is shut down for a period of time. Instructional methods will vary from course to course, all remote instruction will be meaningful and will allow students continue their coursework until school reopens.

Instructions and information will be posted to this website at the link below.


Arlyn Mission Statement

To build a safe, therapeutic, student centered learning community. We seek to nurture personal growth, inspire a love of learning, promote self-expression, and strengthen relationships among students, families, staff and the community at large. Our vision is for students to be empowered, prepared, and self-assured as fully invested members of society.


We Believe:

  • All individuals are unique and valuable and are deserving of respect.
  • Each and every person can learn.
  • Emotional, physical and social well-being enhance learning.
  • In providing a challenging, experiential, and differentiated curriculum.
  • Learning occurs best when there are positive partnerships among students, staff, family, and community.
  • In strengthening the whole student so that every graduate of Arlyn School becomes an educated, confident, self-advocate throughout life.

Arlyn School addresses the needs of internalizing students ages 10-21 with average or above average intelligence demonstrating emotional, behavioral, learning, and/or attention issues.

Arlyn School’s goal is to provide structure, individualization and support to our students and their families. Arlyn collaborates with home districts to promote successful reintegration into the public school system, competitive employment and/or post-secondary education.

Enrollment is year-round on a non-discriminatory basis. Students participate in a continuous school year program following a regular and extended school year calendar.
