Check Out our Students’ Artwork at the Atlas

For the third season, Art Connection in the Capital Region (ACCR) has collaborated with the Atlas Performing Arts Center to expand public access to visual art throughout the District. St. Coletta is proud to announce that we have joined this effort to organize an exhibition that pairs artwork created by our students with works from artists within ACCR's collection. At the close of the show, artworks will be gifted to local nonprofits for display in the public areas of their agency. Please take a look!

The virtual art gallery will be on view throughout the spring

  • It is great to know that I can send Jonathan to school to work with staff who love their jobs. Rare are the mornings that Jonathan is not smiling as I dress and tell him he's going to school. He loves his teachers and is excited to get on the bus each morning. As parents, we are excited that Jonathan has a great team helping him achieve his full potential.” Sandra Thomas St. Coletta Parent
  • I cannot express my gratitude towards your dedication and devoting service for my son. I am very grateful for him to be exposed to you, people that try to care and love him for who he is. I deeply appreciate all that you do, and thank you from the bottom of my heart.” Veronica Aneke St. Coletta Parent
  • I am so thankful for St. Coletta and all the staff. You all are so caring and for that I am truly grateful. Kwenton loves coming to school even though he can't tell me, he shows with that smile of his. His aide will never know how much she is loved by our family. The care and attention she gives is off the chart.” Wanda Graves St. Coletta Parent
