Mansfield Hall is an innovative post-secondary program for young adults who have the academic potential to be successful in college, but need additional individualized supports to realize their possibilities. Our mission is to empower students with various disabilities to successfully earn a college degree, develop authentic living skills, and transition to a productive career and independent lifestyle.
Learning. Living. Giving. Engaging.
Our students come from a variety of backgrounds, but have one thing in common: the desire to lead an independent and meaningful life. We work with students who have the capacity for college study, but still need to develop their adaptive skills to reach their true potential. This may include students who have learning disabilities, mild autism, Asperger’s syndrome, nonverbal learning disabilities, ADHD, executive functioning impairments, and other students with unique characteristics that may pose challenges in the transition to college.
Mansfield Hall is located in the heart of Burlington, Vermont, where our students, attending any of the nearby two- and four-year colleges, can become a part of the larger collegiate community. Recently rated the “Happiest Small City” in the country by CBS News, Burlington is nestled between the Green Mountains and Lake Champlain and provides the perfect environment for transitioning into adulthood.
The experience of successfully learning, living, giving, and engaging — of doing the work of an independent and contributing adult — is the powerful teacher that enables our students to realize their possibilities.
