Programs & Services
For over a century, Kurn Hattin has been a place where children come to grow, learn, thrive, and succeed.
Our experienced, caring staff take the time to learn the unique background and needs of each child and family, so that we can provide optimal care and individualized support to help all children reach their full potential.
Once enrolled, teachers, residential staff, and counselors form a dedicated support network to help each child adjust and succeed in all areas of development; academic, physical, social, and emotional. Ongoing communication with the child’s family is an important key to success.
