Challenged Child and Friends in Gainesville plans to hold a series of open houses in hopes of increasing awareness and enrollment.

The school, now in its 30th year, groups children with disabilities in a learning environment with typically developing children.

Open houses are set for March 20, April 17 and May 8. All begin at 8 a.m. with a light breakfast and include tours and introductions from parents and administrators.

“We love to get people in the door,” said Cindy Wilson, director of development.

Currently, nearly 130 students attend Challenged Child; about 65 percent are children with disabilities.

Tuition at the school averages $5,000 a year. For families with financial difficulties or a child with disabilities, that price can vary.
