Special People in Catholic Education (SPiCE) supports the education of children with special learning needs in our parish and school. We value each student’s unique spiritual, intellectual, physical, social, cultural, and emotional needs. Each child in our parish is a child of God, and our program supports the educational needs of all children as we strive to serve a variety of learning styles which provide diversity in the classroom environment.

If any questions please feel free to contact our director of student learning, Jill Carfagna, at mrs.carfagna@stbrigid-school.org
